Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

We have another editor puzzle for you tonight: a 9x9 from Olivia Mitra Framke called "Making a Splash." We hope it feels like a fun and slightly off-beat day trip with friends.

Olivia Mitra Framke (she/her) started constructing crosswords in 2016 under the mentorship of the late great Nancy Salomon. You may recognize her name from the New York Times, USA Today, the Inkubator, and more. Olivia lives in Jersey City with her dachshund pup Charlie where she enjoys hosting board game nights and Star Wars viewing parties. Today also happens to be her birthday!

Olivia says: "I'm so thrilled to be joining the AVCX family this year! This small puzzle had 3 long seed entries, and I was so pleased to be able to make it work. Who doesn't love a good 14-Across? Sounds so good right about now!! <3"

Headed to your inbox next week: a pair of midis written and edited by Lil AVC X editors Sara Cantor and Rafael Musa.

Thanks for your support!

Your friends a Lil AVC X
