Welcome to Tether's End
Who We Are
Tether's End is an online literary magazine dedicated to publishing prose, poetry, creative non-fiction and art + photography. We want to uplift new and established writers from all backgrounds. Send us your voice-driven, unforgettable work; your stories that get under our skin - visit our submissions page for more guidelines or read our masthead to find out more about what we're looking for.
A magazine solely for those at the end of their tether? We're a-frayed knot, though we may be at the end of ours...
Our name comes from a handwritten sign which hangs over a small corner of a bungalow garage in East Yorkshire. We want to see writing as eclectic as its contents.
The end of one's tether (chiefly British, informal): a state in which one is not able to deal with a problem, difficult situation, etc., any longer. "I'm at the end of my tether."
