Coconut loses about $3,000 per year. Or I guess I should say I lose it out of my own pocket. But it’s totally, 100% worth it when we can help more than a dozen poetry books find their readers annually!!! It’s wonderful and rewarding to be an editor—definitely worth “paying for”!!! The only thing I ever ask our authors to pay for are additional copies above their 25 free author copies. They get a 50% discount off of additional copies. That said, we don’t fund our authors’ readings, other than AWP—I think that’s true of pretty much every small press.
