Francis Hamit is donating his papers to the University of Iowa Libraries Special Collections Department. Not long ago he tallied 31 boxes already sent. Now he needs some help to see it through. “They pay the shipping but otherwise it’s a donation,” he said at the time. “Because of our recent health problems Leigh and I have to hire help to finish this up and I have an IndieGoGo appeal ongoing.”

Hamit offers a few perks for substantial donors, such as a manuscript critique or guidance in self-publishing your book.
