The team behind untethered.

Managing Editor

Stephanie McKechnie is a queer feminist writer, editor, and emcee extraordinaire. She holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from University of King’s College and a BA in professional and creative writing from York University. She is currently at work on a nonfiction manuscript about hitchhiking across Canada. She is an expert cat snuggler, a hitchhiking enthusiast, and a fire building pro. Though her (usually filthy) feet often lead her elsewhere, this untethered co-founder calls Toronto home.


Assistant Editor

Her flash fiction and poetry can be found in BAD DOGThe Feathertale ReviewBad Nudes(parenthetical)antilang, and other places. Her debut book of linked flash fiction, Tiny Ruins, is forthcoming with Radiant Press in Fall 2020. Follow her cat drawings on Instagram @morningkitties.
