This is the website of the writer and journalist Aisling Cronin.
I named this website “Weaving Legends” not just as a nod to my love for folklore and mythology (which will often be discussed on this site) but also as an expression of my interest in the stories we “weave” for ourselves day in and day out: the personal and cultural mythologies that influence how our societies are constructed, and who we perceive ourselves to be. These are the issues I am interested in addressing in my professional writing work.
I am the co-editor of Positive Life Magazine, an Irish publication dealing with spiritual and holistic matters. I write for GCN (Ireland’s national LGBT+ publication) and I have also been a contributor to the New York-based animal and environmental advocacy site One Green Planet since 2013.
