Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

Warning: Don't read this entire email until after you solve this #HipAF themeless by Jenna LaFleur. It's so on-brand that her Twitter handle is a spoiler! We think you'll find it challenging -- and a load of fun.

Jenna LaFleur is a 22-year-old trans woman from Washington, DC. Her puzzles have previously been published by Queer Qrosswords and the Puzzle Society, and she has placed in the top 10 at multiple crossword tournaments, including a finals appearance at Lollapuzzoola in 2020. When she's not solving crosswords, she can be found listening to podcasts, playing the drums, or petting her two very fluffy cats. The seed entry to this puzzle should be pretty obvious to anyone who follows her on Twitter. [STOP READING UNTIL YOU'VE SOLVED! We warned you! --Stella]

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 January 28: a geography lesson -- and a debut! -- from Connie Alford.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Juliana, and Stella
