Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight we are happy to bring you the first of the puzzles from this year's main constructor roster. This 11x11 we're calling "The Milky Way" from Carolyn Davies Lynch has cool mom vibes that we hope you enjoy.

Carolyn Davies Lynch (she/her) is enjoying a career sabbatical after years fighting for education equity in communities across the US. She now spends her days writing crossword puzzles, starting a men's underwear company with her husband, and reveling in all the joy and chaos of their four-kid household.

Carolyn says: "I am beyond thrilled to be part of the Lil AVC X roster this year! I can get blissfully lost for hours trying to piece a puzzle together, and I'm excited for you to hopefully enjoy the fruits of my labor on this one. Thanks for solving!"

One more thing while we have your attention: The puzzle pack These Puzzles Fund Abortion 4 is now available for presale. A donation gets you 20+ original crosswords and variety puzzles themed around social and reproductive justice. Some of the puzzles were constructed by Lil AVC X team members.

Headed to your inbox tomorrow: our second roster puzzle of the year, from Katja Brinck.

Thanks for your support!

Your friends at Lil AVC X
