About Ceallaigh

Greetings! I'm Dr. Ceallaigh S. MacCath-Moran. I hold B.A. in Celtic Studies from the University of Toronto, an M.A. in English and Creative Writing from the University of Maine, and a PhD in Folklore from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. I'm also an author, poet, and musician under the name C.S. MacCath. My long-running Folklore & Fiction Project integrates these passions with a focus on folklore scholarship aimed at storytellers, and I bring a deep appreciation of animism, ecology, and folkloristics to my own storytelling. Work from my two fiction and poetry collections has been shortlisted for the Washington Science Fiction Association Small Press Award, nominated for the Pushcart Prize, and nominated for the Rhysling Award. Recently, my podcast radio drama “The Belt and the Necklace,” was produced by the Odyssey Theatre in Ottawa. Last but not least, I've been Pagan by faith and a witch by practice for over thirty years, and in that time I've become a Druid grade member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids, a Nordic animist, and a teacher of magical traditions. I live on Cape Breton Island with my husband, two black cats, and a giant dog. You can find me online at csmaccath.com, folkloreandfiction.com, and linktr.ee/csmaccath.

I'm also an active member of these professional organizations, among others:
