LA Times specs
« on: October 30, 2019, 01:37:17 PM »
The only place I can find the specs for LA Times submissions is on the Cruiciverb website.  It seems odd to me that I can't find them on the LA Times and/or Tribune Media Services websites.  My question is this:  Are the specs on the Cruciverb website (which are dated October 2011) in fact the only place where they are available, and, if so, are they up-to-date?

I'm not aware of an updated spec sheet for LA Times - I think the one on Cruciverb is pretty much right on. One thing that I'm aware of from experience is that if you're doing a theme that requires (or uses) a reveal entry, Rich dislikes a single word reveal and prefers a full length reveal that's part of the symmetrical theme. Also, be advised that the limit of 10% abbreviations really applies to all non-words (abbreviations, acronyms, prefix, suffix, etc. - anything that's not an actual word). Also, the response time can be longer than what's stated.
