With MacQueen’s Quinterly, as it was with KYSO Flash, our
publisher’s goal is to balance the ratio of women to men authors and artists
whenever possible—which Clare actually managed only once: Issue 7 contains works
by 32 contributors, exactly half of whom are women. However, in each of 12 issues,
from Fall 2014 thru Summer 2019, KYSO Flash consistently published a minimum
of 44% women authors and artists. Fifty-nine percent was the highest percentage
of women published, which occurred in Issue 11, Spring 2019.
