VIDA Stats, MacQ-3:
This issue contains works by a total of 65 contributors, 32 of whom (or 49.5%)
are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously
in MacQueen’s Quinterly nor in KYSO Flash.
Of the 65 total contributors, 36 are women (56%) and 29 are men (44%).
Of the 32 “new” contributors, 21 are women (66%) and 11 are men
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.
