Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We're delighted to be publishing this fun freestyle by Steph Brown. We think you'll find it very challenging!

Steph started solving crosswords with her dad in high school and first ventured into constructing to make a personalized puzzle as a gift for his birthday in 2020. That first attempt at making a puzzle lit a spark and she now tries to regularly fit constructing into the spare time she can find outside of grad school and marathon training. These days most of her puzzling endeavors occur in coffee shops around Madison, Wisconsin. She posts puzzles on her blog A Little Puzzling and you can find her on Twitter at @brownstephj!

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 Thursday, November 23: celebrate Thanksgiving by feasting on Manaal Mohammed's Inkubator debut!

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
