Posted: 18 Sept. 2022

Bio Notes: Issue 15: September 2022

VIDA Stats, MacQ-15:

Although links to 37 bios are included above, this issue contains works by a total of 45 contributors: 21 women (46.5%) and 24 men (53.5%).

Of the 45 contributors, 17 (or 37.5%) are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously in MacQueen’s Quinterly nor in KYSO Flash (MacQ’s predecessor).

Of the 17 “new” contributors, 9 are women (53%) and 8 are men (47%).

With MacQ, 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 has happened only twice: Issue 14 of MacQ contains works by 70 contributors, exactly half of whom are women. And Issue 7 of KYSO Flash contains works by 32 contributors, 16 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.

For details about each of those issues, see our Historical VIDA stats.
