Title: looking for advice on "going pro"
Post by: earlfrumper on October 26, 2014, 12:39:25 AM
Hi all,

Looking for some advice on how to make crossword creation more of a full time thing. If not going "pro", maybe minor league. Currently I produce a paid weekly puzzle for a local newspaper, and I've got a pending puzzle in the LA Times. In general, I think that I can reliably produce decent puzzles.

What I'd like to know about is the process of proposing and creating puzzles as part of a collection (themed or otherwise) for a publishing company or puzzle website. Would I approach, say, Puzzlewright, directly, with a theme idea, or do they reach out to established constructors first?

I welcome any messages on this topic.
