Who are Macaroni Kid publishers?
Macaroni Kid Publishers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and skills sets. Many of our publishers have no publishing or market experience, but have found that Macaroni Kid fits a need in their lives. Whether it's helping them to find the balance between work and play or those just looking for something more than being "just mom", Macaroni Kid provides the tools and the community to help publishers build a business and find what drives them.
Publishers are moms (and a few dads) who love sharing the wonderful things going on in their communities with other families and in the process, they find that their communities needed them as much as they needed to something more! They are making differences, changing lives, and having fun while doing it.
