The Dewdrop is a digest of reflective and thoughtful writing, loosely based on spiritual themes. Our content includes poetry and essays that draw on classic texts as well as the insight and brilliance of contemporary writers. Grounded in Zen Buddhism, this spiritually-focused platform is interested in every faith background as well as writers who don't identify with any formal faith tradition. Humanists, agnostics, scientists, atheists and Jedis are most warmly welcome, as we are always on the lookout for fresh talent.

Note that our poetry submissions open and close on a weekly basis, usually from Monday morning to Sunday evening. If you are trying to submit and the submissions appear to be closed, do try again in a few days.


The Dewdrop is accepting any submissions of poetry from writers for the month of July 2024.
