Today's puzzle is an unthemed 11x11 by Brooke Husic, edited by Chris Piuma. It's titled "Giving 110%" and is a challenging 4.5/5 difficulty.
Brooke Husic enjoys constructing crosswords at a range of difficulty levels: she contributes easy puzzles to the USA Today (she has Tuesday's puzzle with Rebecca Goldstein; check it out!) and writes super difficult -- but thoroughly test-solved! -- crosswords for her indie blog, xwords by a ladee. Brooke is part of the Lil AVC X and Inkubator editing teams, co-maintains Spread the Word(list) with Enrique, and is a cohost of the illustrious Crossnerds podcast.
That's all from the Lil team this week! Tomorrow evening you can expect your regularly scheduled AVCX "Classic" puzzle, and then you'll be hearing from our Cryptic, Plus, and Trivia features. Get excited! (And contribute to the Kickstarter here!)
