Evan Birnholz, co-founder of the Indie 500 Crossword Puzzle Tournament, is the new crossword constructor for The Washington Post Magazine. Birnholz will continue the Magazine’s tradition of stimulating Sunday crossword puzzles beginning with the December 6 issue.

“We are excited to have Evan constructing puzzles for us and can’t wait to see what he comes up with,” said Lynn Medford, Editor of The Washington Post Magazine.

With six years of writing crosswords under his belt, Birnholz’s puzzles have been published in The Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and Will Shortz’s WordPlay Magazine among others. Birnholz most recently ran his own website, Devil Cross, featuring a challenging weekly crossword puzzle.
