Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

A timely announcement! The American Crossword Puzzle Tournament will be held both in person and virtually over the weekend of April 1-3, 2022. The Inkubator team will be in Stamford with a preview of our upcoming book (to be published April 26), and we'll have some special swag for subscribers!

We're delighted to be publishing this sparkling 70-word themeless by Kate Chin Park. We think you'll find it very challenging!

Kate is a custom furniture maker who is a proud non-whiz when it comes to solving and wordplay. Originally from Spokane, she lived in San Diego, Brooklyn, London, and Brooklyn again before settling down in Oakland. She began solving crosswords in 2019 and making them in 2021, and credits mentorship both formal and informal for her growth as a constructor. When not awash in words or sawdust, Kate loves to read, eat the food her partner cooks, snuggle with her hostile-to-everyone-else cat, and watch the Golden State Warriors. Find Kate on Twitter at @kateschmate and solve more of her crosswords on her blog.

Coming up next, on March 24: divine inspiration from Allegra Kuney.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
