Bio Notes: Issue 23

VIDA Stats, MacQ-23:

* The asterisks above indicate contributors who are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously in MacQueen’s Quinterly nor in KYSO Flash (MacQ’s predecessor).

Although links to 76 bios are included above, this issue contains works by a total of 82 contributors: 48 women (58.5%) and 34 men (41.5%).

Of the 82 contributors, 37 (or %) are “new to MacQ.” Of the 37 “new” contributors, 25 are women (64.8%) and 12 are men (35.2%).

With MacQ, as it was with KYSO Flash, my goal as publisher is to balance the ratio of women to men authors and artists—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.

Across the first 20 issues of MacQ, the number of women authors and artists published therein averages 52.1 percent, ranging from a low of 40% in Issue 1 (January 2020) to a high of 62.5% in Issue 12 (March 2022).

(Across 12 issues of KYSO Flash, from Fall 2014 thru Summer 2019, the number of women published therein averages 52 percent, ranging from a low of 44% in Issue 3 [Spring 2015] to a high of 59% in Issue 11 [Spring 2019]. For details about those issues, see Historical VIDA stats.)
