A call for donations. The Helena High literary magazine, which we have shortened to Eureka, instead of Eureka No. 4, needs funding! If you just want to donate money to help us print our magazine in the spring, that would be fantastic. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d be delighted to hear from you. We were thinking of having a special page in the back of the literary magazine with a list of all our sponsors and those who helped us get set up this year. Please consider helping. Every little bit helps.
