For crossword fans that don't enjoy ACPT competition, I think an annual workshop crossword conference could be a fun thing to attend where prolific constructors could teach people how they go about creating a puzzle, tricks to the trade, describing the submission and waiting process, showing new constructions various construction software programs, how to tackle filling out large empty grid areas when constructing your own themeless puzzle, etc.
If anyone is interested I would love to make this a reality. In addition, the conference would be free. Anyone would be welcome.
Please let me know. Thanks!
