Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're delighted to be publishing this meditation on new combinations by the creative Karen Lurie. We think you'll find it lightly challenging!

Karen is a Brooklyn, New York-based comedy and game show writer who dove into crossword construction during the dark pandemic days of 2020, like so many others. In addition to the Inkubator, her crosswords have appeared in the New York Times, AVCX, Universal, and the LA Times.

You may have seen in an earlier email that this year will be Inkubator's last as a subscription service. We're glad for the awesome run we've had since 2019, and excited for the rest of 2023. With that in mind, women and nonbinary constructors, we'd love to hear from you! Do you have a pitch for a themed or themeless puzzle? Check out our submission guidelines -- we've extended our current deadline to February 15.

Coming up next, on February 16: a challenging themeless from Wyna Liu.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
