Thanks so much to everyone who came to our FIRST ever Saskatoon launch party! Thank you to all of our exceptional readers, from our new issue as well as almost every other issue, and to our amazing performers, Goose Lake (did you know they have a bandcamp site where you can buy their music on the internet — check it out!). Thanks as well to Amigos for hosting us, to our awesome untethered table volunteer, Simon Bohm, and to Shannon McConnell for taking some great photos! Let’s do it again, yeah?
If you missed the chance to buy a copy of the new issue, or any of our back issues, no worries — you can still do so on our website!

We are so thankful to all the folks who came out to the Supermarket in Kensington to celebrate the launch of the sixth issue of untethered! We could not have been more impressed by the performances from our featured readers and the massive turnout (we had to set up more chairs during the break because it was so jam packed)! It was one of the nicest days we’d had in Toronto this spring so far and we PACKED the back room! We had an amazing night and we hope you did too. Big thanks again to everyone who read and came out to support the magazine and hear our talented contributors.
We had record number of raffle ticket sales, and everyone we saw leaving was clutching our new beloved issue, so THANK YOU for your incredible ongoing support!
If you missed your chance to buy a copy at the launch, you can do so on our website here!
A night before the launch, we realized that four of six of the evenings readers have graced untethered’s pages and launch stages in the past few years and we’re so happy they wanted to partake in another.
Unfortunately co-editor, Nicole Haldoupis, couldn’t make it to the city this time, and her presence was deeply missed (but she was able to catch the readers via video chat!). A huge shout out to untethered’s Fairy Gawdmother, Lesley Kenny, who helped co-editor Stephanie McKechnie host the night!
We owe a huge thank you to Andrew Jehan, our amazing photographer for the evening. We hope you enjoy these stunning pictures!
We are now officially sold out of both issue 1.1 and 1.2 and only have a handful of 2.1 and 2.2, so if you’ve been longing to complete your untethered collection, you’d better order your back issues soon!
We had so much fun, and were impressed by all of the readers who shared their work, and truly inspired by the feedback we received from the audience. untethered would be nothing without all of you.
Big shout out to all of our helpers throughout the night: Lesley Kenny, raffle ticket pusher and co-host extraordinaire; Joanne and Matthew Haldoupis, untethered table volunteers; Andrew Jehan, our badass photographer for the evening; and all our friends and family who came out to support us.
We hope to see you all at the fall launch of 4.1!
