      These two introductory sessions are for anyone who has ever said “I‘m not clever enough to solve cryptic crosswords”, when what they really mean is “Nobody has shown me how.” It’s not as hard as you think, once you’ve been shown a few tricks and got some practice!

      Wendy Wethey has been having fun solving cryptics for over 40 years and started setting them for 4 Australian main centre Sunday newspapers nearly 2 years ago.

       In these two introductory sessions, she will cover:

      • How to attack a puzzle that looks like mumbo-jumbo
      • How to sort out a clue into parts.
      • Some of the key lingo that you’ll need to recognise.
      • Overview of the types of clue. 
      • How to recognise a clue type. Resources you can use to help you improve.

       So come along and unlock the secrets to having fun with Cryptic Crosswords!
