Have you ever wished that you could write word puzzles? My new series, The Joy of Puzzling, will teach you how, and even invite you to try your hand at it yourself! Note that the puzzle-solving and puzzle-writing halves of the contest are separate, and you can enter one without entering the other. You don't even have to write a puzzle to win; you can test-solve and proofread someone else's puzzle and get the same prize as the constructor. Have fun!
