The Meddling Kids Series is the name of the first-ever open reading period for Pilot Books, and the subsequent manuscript that will choose from those we receive to be published in this semi-annual series.
Poems submitted should be written by poets ages 18 and older (not by kids). The audience for the poems is the same audience for the rest of the books we publish (ie: not really kids, though of course we're not opposed to kids reading our books!).
Short explanation: Pilot Books is reading chapbook manuscripts, and will choose one to be published in The Meddling Kids Series. We have a fondness for Scooby Doo, and sometimes feel like the meddling kids of the poetry world. And we like it that way.
Sorry for any confusion!
