NYT RejeXions project
« on: November 08, 2021, 03:09:36 PM »
Hi constructors,

It's very exciting when a puzzle gets published, but I think equally interesting are the puzzles that don't make the cut. I wonder if there are others like me who are occasionally frustrated by the NYT's alleged rationale for some of their rejections, so I made a place for those puzzles!

If you had a perfectly decent puzzle rejected by the NYT (sometimes their feedback really does include the words "this is a very good puzzle, but..."), would you consider sharing it with me here? What you get out of this: I will send you an uplifting email assuring you that the NYT editors were very silly to reject your puzzle. More details are on the form itself, but you retain all rights to the puzzle and are free to submit it elsewhere.

It might be helpful to recruit people to share puzzles with you if you said a little more about what you plan to do with them and what the purpose of the project is. I don't submit many puzzles to NYT, and just looking through them, most of them ended up getting published somewhere else, though I do have a few that I still own the rights to. Tell us more.
