About ada nicolle (luckystreak xwords)

Hi! Ada here (she/they). I write primarily themeless crosswords about things that I find cool every Monday (at least)! They're filled with pop culture, Gen Z references, fun facts, interesting phrases, and anything I find to be worth including in a puzzle. Even if you're not Gen Z, I strive to make these accessible to everybody :))) You can see some of my other work at the New York Times and indie outlets listed here, or on my personal blog.

So why Patreon?
While I love constructing these puzzles, I'm unable to sell them to any major publications. I'm currently an aspiring comedian and artist living in Toronto, and any level of support on this page would greatly help me out. As well, Patreon helps me put out more exclusive crossword content that I personally love seeing from constructors, and means you don't have to commit for a full year if you aren't into it!
