Puzzle Notes

Hi everyone!

This week, we're excited to bring you a lovely cryptic by relative newbie Rebecca Bridge, whose name you might recognize from a fun cryptic she wrote for Lemonade Disco (https://lemonadedisco.com/) a few months back. We feel quite lucky to feature her here and can't wait to see her byline again soon!

From our constructor: Rebecca Bridge is a poet, writer, professor, metalsmith, and freelance content strategist living in Chicago. She is the author of two books, A Month's Worth of Instructional Poems, and Clear Out the Static in Your Attic: A Writer's Guide to Turning Artifacts into Art. In her spare time, she wrangles two young kids, sets cryptics, paints, bikes, volunteers, and goes for A LOT of walks. Though she's not much of a speed solver, she does consistently demolish her husband's crossword puzzle times. By a lot.

We hope you enjoy her puzzle! The next time you hear from us, we'll be bringing you a lovely cryptic from Dan Schwartz.

Until then!
Nate + the AVCX Cryptics team
