Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

Look up, look down, look all around for this puzzle by emerging constructor Jessie Bullock. We think you'll find it lightly challenging!

Jessie's love of constructing crosswords blossomed with the beginning of quarantine as some of her other creative hobbies (like dancing ballet) grew more difficult to do from home. She has since published in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Universal, Boswords Winter Wondersolve, and on her fiancé's puzzle site, Rosswords. When not making puzzles, Jessie is finishing her PhD in Government at Harvard University, where she is writing a dissertation about corrupt deals between organized criminal groups and politicians in Brazil. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts with her fiancé Ross and their bad cat Ruby. Find her on Twitter at @jessiebullock and solve more of her puzzles here.

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 20: some themeless teamwork from Caitlin Reid and Becca Gorman.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
