“VIDA has come under some criticism for not counting everything, but it can’t be everywhere all the time. When it comes to some issues, like race, nationality, class and other divides in publishing, VIDA is a relatively new organization with a specific mission, and one that is making strides toward bettering its work.
The independent literary community has taken notice of the VIDA count. Some editors decided to make their own counts and share them with our readers.”
