You really can't have WA and macro in one lens. An article in this month's Outdoor Photographer, however, does have a section on how to use a WA as a macro; but don't expect the same picture quality.

The 18-55 can focus as close as about 4" at 55mm, giving you some moderate macro capability.

You can make it focus even closer and magnify more with a thin extension ring (6 mm K-1 ring). See the two threads I've linked.

Outdoor Photographer - here? Notice the common misconception, hehe: "The wide-angle lenses have the benefit of a broad depth of field while allowing close focus on a subject."
