Women in Publication: The 2011 Count

This week, VIDA: Women In Literary Arts, a website which “seeks to explore critical and cultural perceptions of writing by women through meaningful conversation and the exchange of ideas among existing and emerging literary communities,” released their annual comparison of publican and review of male and female writers in major literary outlets. The results are disappointing, though unsurprising. The only publication included to publish in almost equal measure was Granta, while others, including The Atlantic,The Paris Review, Harpers and The New Yorker were closer to a 75/25 split in favor of the men.
See all their results after the jump.

“No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.”

—Charles Dickens, Our Mutual Friend

Happy 200th birthday to Charles Dickens—Victorian master of prose, wielder of a mean beard, father of ten, author of over a dozen well-known and never-out-of-print novels (plus numerous other works), creator of some of literature’s most iconic characters, names, and sentences. We can’t even post here all of the covers of your books that we publish. This internet cannot contain you.

“I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are really good at heart.”
