If you would like to write for Macaroni Kid Acton Concord Bedford Lexington (for pay!), we'd love to have you join our team of contributing writers.  We have a list of topics you can select from or feel free to suggest any local topic you'd like to write about.  

We love to publish articles by local writers that are informative, real, useful and fun. Our focus is on local content about destinations, businesses, and activities you can do right here in this area, particularly the towns/cities of Acton, Boxborough, Bedford, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Maynard and Carlisle.  We also are interested in articles about day trips within 1-2 hours.  

A typical article is 500-1000 words and includes plenty of details and information that parents need to know, plus lots of pictures (video is welcomed too).  Article examples include Playground Guides about specific playgrounds, Museum Visits, a Day in [Town], recipes, crafts, and other ideas for things to do with the kids.  Pay range is $20-50 per article (including photos).

Regular contributors can take advantage of free tickets to shows or destinations, in return for an article about their experience.
