Have you ever wondered what is involved in producing crossword puzzles? This program will walk through the steps of creating a publishable crossword puzzle, from concept to completion. Follow the process, see the resources used, and gain insight into the attention to detail that is at the foundation of a quality puzzle. Led by Ruth B. Margolin, who broke into the field of crossword puzzle construction in 2014. She has had more than a dozen puzzles published in the New York Times, including five Sunday puzzles. In addition, she has had three puzzles in the Wall Street Journal, one in USA Today, and she now has a monthly crossword feature in her local New Jersey newspaper. Margolin has been invited to serve as an official and a constructor at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament, to join a national group of women constructors in creating puzzles to raise funds for women’s causes, and to create a puzzle for a Boswords tournament.
