VIDA Stats, MacQ-4:
This issue contains works by a total of 48 contributors, 17 of whom (or 35%)
are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously
in MacQueen’s Quinterly nor in KYSO Flash. (Note: Bios are
included for 46 of the contributors.)
Of the 48 total contributors, 27 are women (56%) and 21 are men (44%).
Of the 17 “new” contributors, 11 are women (65%) and 6 are men
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 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.
