About The Dewdrop

Vanessa Able - Editor, The Dewdrop

Hello and thank you for reading The Dewdrop.

The Dewdrop is a digest of reflective and powerful writing loosely based on spiritual themes and includes poetry, essays and book excerpts that draw on classic texts as well as contemporary literature.

Grounded in Zen Buddhism, The Dewdrop is interested in every faith background as well as writers who don’t identify with any formal tradition. Humanists, agnostics, scientists, atheists and Jedis are most warmly welcome.

I am a Zen priest, writer and editor. As such, this site is the coming together of my three biggest interests. The material on The Dewdrop is in part taken from already existing publications, and is in part submitted by current and emerging writers, published in the ‘Featured Writers’ section.

All the posts on The Dewdrop are loved and published here in the spirit of sharing and promoting these wonderful writers and their works and ideas. If you see your work here and you would like it taken down, please contact me and I will do so right away.

Thank you to everyone for reading and supporting the effort. If you’re enjoying the drops, do sign up for the Saturday newsletter which contains a summary of the week’s posts.

Deep bows and all the good stuff,

Vanessa
