Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight, Nijah Morris brings us a 9x9 midi called "ME@ Pies." We think this'll be very smooth, extremely fun, and super delicious.

Nijah Morris is a Black queer constructor from Philly who started making crosswords in 2022. Since then, she's been featured in the USA Today and the New York Times. When she's not indulging in crossword creation, she enjoys exploring new ways to display her creative energy such as playing Minecraft and The Sims 4, crocheting and sculpting with clay.

Nijah says: "I'm excited to be apart of Lil AVC X's roster team this year and making my debut with ME@ PIES! ME@ PIES, which is just the funky way I wanted to spell "MEAT PIES", was the first midi I've ever created. I wanted this puzzle to feel carefree and display things that I love. I hope everyone enjoys solving as much as I had constructing."

Headed to your inbox tomorrow night: Darby Ratliff's Lil AVC X debut.

With gratitude,

Your friends at Lil AVC X | @avcxword | @lilavcx | @avcxcryptic | @avcxplus | @avcxtrivia
