Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

This week, Karen Lurie is laying it all on the table for us, with her Inkubator debut titled "Truth be Told." Frankly, we think you'll find it refreshing! And maybe on the light side of moderately challenging.

Karen is a Brooklyn, New York-based comedy and game show writer who dove into crossword construction during the dark pandemic days of 2020, like so many others. Her crosswords have appeared in The New York Times, AVCX, Universal, and the LA Times. She's very excited to add The Inkubator to that list!

An announcement for constructors: for all of June, submissions to the Inkubator from nonbinary and women constructors are open for themeless puzzles! Please read our specs in full here before submitting. We can't wait to see your submissions!

Next in the cycle, on June 9, you won't want to miss a scholarly collaboration from Christina Iverson and Shirley Wong.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
