VIDA Stats, MacQ-5:
This issue contains works by a total of 57 contributors, 26 of whom (or ~45.5%) 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 only 53 contributors.)
Of the 57 total contributors, 27 are women (47%) and 30 are men (53%).
Of the 26 “new” contributors, 12 are women (46.5%) and 13 are men (53.5%).
With MacQueen’s Quinterly, as it was with KYSO Flash, my goal is to balance the ratio of women to men authors and artists whenever possible—which has happened 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 those issues, see Historical VIDA stats.
