Welcome to my website! My name is Aisling Cronin and I’m a writer and editor from Dublin, Ireland.
I am the author of The Light Touch of Liberty and the co-editor of a spiritual and holistic news publication called Positive Life Magazine. I have also been a regular contributor to GCN (Ireland’s national LGBT+ publication) and One Green Planet (an online green news, lifestyle, and environmental advocacy platform based in New York City), among others.
I named my website “Weaving Legends” not just as a nod to my love for folklore and mythology (which heavily influences my work) 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, where we are going, and who we perceive ourselves to be.
I am a firm believer in the power of mythology, symbolism and dreams. In my creative writing, I aim to explore ideas that lie beyond our typical boundaries of what is “normal” or possible. I delight in stories that inspire and uplift people, or help them to dream higher possibilities into being.
