Myths & Legends: Wrap Up

Anonymous self-volunteered demographic data for January 2021.

At the end of every one of our theme months (during our GftW period, at least), we’re publishing fully anonymous, self-volunteered demographic data in an effort to be accountable to our anti-oppressive, inclusive agenda.

Myths & Legends was always planned to be a unique month, insofar as the pieces were mostly commissions, or submitted via word-of-mouth from commissions. So the submissions:published ratio is a little sui generis this month.

//Submissions

Next month, we’ll tally both running totals and monthly totals. Plus, our inclusivity guidelines should be ready roughly by then… fingers crossed.
