If you answered yes to any of the above, Macaroni Kid Kitsap wants you! We are looking to expand our editorial selection and invite contributing writers!
Guest writers may submit an article on any topic of their choosing, geared toward an audience of Kitsap families with children. Local content must refer to places within Kitsap County. Ideal article length is between 3-5 paragraphs; lists are great too!
It's a great way to get published with a byline!
Aside from potentially having their writing published on our website and eNewsletter, from time to time, our regular contributors may be asked to participate in specific writing assignments which may include product, venue, restaurant or event reviews and be provided complimentary tickets, items or admission for the purpose of such a review.
Submission does not guarantee publishing (please check with us about your idea before you take the time to write it), and timing will depend on our editorial calendar. Articles about a business, product, or service, are "advertorials" and we coordinate these with local businesses, clubs, schools, etc., and publish them from time to time, however there is a small fee required from the business since it is a form of advertising and reaches thousands of local families. Businesses are welcome to contact us for information about this, and other forms of advertising on our website and in our eNewsletter.
To submit your article, email the content along with title and byline. A photo (or several) you take to go with the article is greatly appreciated and greatly increases the chances of the article being published; any images submitted must be able to be shared without risk of copyright infringement. If you are unsure, please ask. Send us the photo source and credit, or let us know if you've taken the photo so we can give you proper acknowledgement. All content is subject to final editing by Macaroni Kid Kitsap.
Macaroni Kid Kitsap reserves the right to choose as many or few articles to fill our content needs. We reserve the right to modify the terms of, or cancel, the guest writer program for any reason at any time. Articles published become the property of Macaroni Kid Kitsap and may not be republished in any other publication. By submitting your photos, you are giving permission for Macaroni Kid Kitsap to post them on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest) and to use the images on our website for the purpose of this promotion or any future Macaroni Kid marketing.
