VIDA Stats, MacQ-8:

Although links to only 47 bios are included above, this issue contains works by a total of 51 contributors: 26 women (51%) and 25 men (49%).

Of the 51 contributors, 24 (or 47%) are “new to MacQ”—that is, their works do not appear previously in MacQueen’s Quinterly nor in KYSO Flash.

Of the 24 “new” contributors, 14 are women (59%) and 10 are men (41%).

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 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 each of those issues, see our Historical VIDA stats.
