Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're delighted to be publishing this beauty by Adrienne Atkins in her Inkubator debut. We think you'll find it lightly challenging!

Adrienne has been solving since 2019 and constructing since 2020, taking up both activities inconsistently, but in ecstatic, obsessive bursts. After finishing her PhD in 2022, she now manages two academic journals and spends a lot of time with her friends dancing, sewing, rock climbing, seeing live music, and just sitting around. She lives in Philadelphia.

When you're done solving, check out Diary of a Crossword Fiend for a write-up and discussion, every Friday after an Inkubator puzzle is published. For general updates, follow us on Twitter at @InkubatorXWords, and visit our website. Thanks to all of our subscribers for your continuing support, feedback, and kindness!

Coming up next, on July 20: a themeless debut from Spencer Leach.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
