Here's the short version of our info:
We recently launched the Camino Quarterly magazine. We walked the Camino in the fall of 2012. Since then, we’ve remained involved through weekly meetings of our local Camino group in Asheville, NC, monthly Camino meetings at the REI, and more. Chris is a publisher with a long history in magazines, and we soon realized the Camino de Santiago needed an international English-language magazine. We’ve printed a preview issue, 200 copies of which were distributed at the recent “Gathering” in St. Louis. You can find links to the online version of the preview issue and more info at http://Launch.CaminoQuarterly.com and please share this.
And here's the longer version:
The Camino Quarterly is a print journal dedicated to accurate, up-to-date, usable information about the Camino de Santiago, the evermore-popular 500-mile pilgrimage across Spain. Whether you are thinking of walking the Camino, have already walked it once or many times, or may never walk it but are still interested in learning about it, the Camino Quarterly is for you.
As some of you may know, we printed a Preview Issue that was distributed at "The Gathering" in St. Louis this year. If you didn't get to see a copy, you can view an online version of the 28-page Preview Issue here (regular issues will have 48 to 80 pages): http://Preview.CaminoQuarterly.com
Just as walking the Camino de Santiago is a journey with a before, during, and after; reading the Camino Quarterly is a journey through the three stages of preparation, pilgrimage, and reflection. While each issue is focused on a central topic (the topic for this preview issue and our first “official” issue is the Camino Francés), the magazine progresses through those three sections.
If you are interested in submitting articles, photos, or art, please visit the following link: http://Submissions.CaminoQuarterly.com
In the beginning preparation section, we'll cover topics such as Camino History & Legends, Gear reviews & guides, Packing, Statistics (including temperature, rain, and Compostela certificates), Spanish culture & language, Technology, and Words of Wisdom.
In the middle pilgrimage section, we provide a Quarterly Events Calendar, In-depth Features about our central theme, a “She said; He said” department, Gallery of Camino Passport Stamps, Interviews, Cathedrals, a "Don’t Miss This" department, Featured restaurants, Spiritual matters, Camino humor, and more.
In the ending reflections section, we offer impressions by those who have walked The Way: our “Everyone walks their own Camino” department, Artistic responses (art, poetry, photo essays, etc.), News from English-Speaking Pilgrims’ Associations’ Worldwide, a “Wish I had; Wish I hadn’t” and a “We were told but we learned this” departments, as well as Camino book reviews, and so forth.
