Welcome to La Concha!
…the quarterly publication of American Pilgrims on the Camino. La Concha informs readers about events and news of interest to the pilgrim community and gives pilgrims a means to tell others of their Camino experiences, through essays, photographs, original art, poetry and other forms of expression. Members receive newly published issues electronically and have access to all editions.
Whether you are an oft-published author or will be seeing your writing and name in print for the first time, we want to hear from you.
