Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

Em Handy makes her AVCX *world debut* this week at the Classic with "Downward Spiral," at 3/5 difficulty. Em's been a joy to work with and we send her the biggest congrats.

By way of a bio, Em Handy (she/her) is a self-proclaimed "cute expert" and works a variety of jobs from landscape design to illustration to crossword writing (see attached). Her passions unfortunately include Nancy Drew video games and diet coke. She is too tired for social media but you can sign up for her very sporadic crossword mailer at emhandy.com/goodies.
