  • Crosswords - Tips on Solving


    As a crossword addict for some 50 years, I aim – in the spirit of U3A – to share such knowledge and tips as I've accumulated, in order to help fellow members to tackle cryptic crossword puzzles. Being an occasional crossword compiler enables me to offer additional insights into the devious ways of setters. The group meets ad hoc, not on a fixed schedule, to keep it flexible and accommodate members' availability. It is also flexible in level: can start from basics for members with little or no experience of crossword solving; and move up to tips and 'tricks of the trade' for those making headway but in need of some help and guidance. Content of meetings ranges accordingly from explanation of key concepts and types of crossword clue, with worked examples, to tackling an actual newspaper puzzle together. NB: it's not about 'lessons' or a 'course', we keep it informal – a better word might be 'workshops'. A meeting could be with half a dozen fellow members, or just one, and location wherever suits the majority. No commitment: come once or several times, whatever you need to develop confidence and solve crosswords whether by yourself or with the monthly Crossword group (see handbook).
