VIDA Stats, MacQ-2:
This issue contains works by a total of 59 contributors, 33 of whom (or 56%)
are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously
in MacQueen’s Quinterly (nor in KYSO Flash).
Only 56 names are listed above, since bios do not appear herein for three artists:
Grace Evans, Berthe Morisot, and Howard Pyle.
Of the total contributors, 31 are women (53%) and 28 are men (47%).
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 of KYSO
Flash 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.
For details about each of those issues, see our
Historical VIDA stats.
