Book Proposal Writing Contests


Transformational ideas that change people, businesses, and the world for the better

Every day, about 400 million stars are born in nebulae, dazzling star nurseries scattered throughout our observable universe.  The vast lengths in time and space give us a seemingly static view of our night sky, yet everything is in a constant state of flux. 

Our world is also constantly changing, in violent volcanic spurts and quakes that thrust mountains upwards; or slowly, in the tireless erosion of rivers through gorges and gusty winds that sculpt mountains. Time flows on past seasons without pause; consciousness streams uninterrupted through our humble, ephemeral lives on Earth. 

Whether we like it or not, change is the pervasive driving force in the ongoing evolution of our selves, our cultures and beliefs. Nothing remains stagnant and unchanging. Those willing to embrace change may survive, and even even thrive, and those that do not face obsolescence and a slow fade into obscurity.

Philosopher Friedriche Nietzsche wrote, “The snake which cannot cast its skin has to die. As well the minds which are prevented from changing their opinions; they cease to be mind.” Transformation is key to existence, and death is merely another change that makes way for new things to come. 

Even stars that endure for millions and trillions of years are not eternal. When it inevitably burns through its fuel, it fades away, or explodes in a spectacular supernova that briefly outshines entire galaxies, leaving expanding clouds of hot gas that eventually turns back into a dynamic star-birthing nebula once again.

There are 6 different ways a star can go supernova, and many more ways to live a life. Our fates are not determined by our births - we can relinquish our old ideas, renounce the superfluous, and kill our egos. Only by braving the crucibles of transformation can we rise from the ashes of the banal and emerge exceptional.

Publishizer is proud to host a series non-fiction AND fiction book proposal contests to inspire in 2019. We invite authors to share their transformational ideas and stories with the force of a supernova, and inspire the next step forward in our evolution.

There are no entry fees or purchases required to join. For a chance to land a publisher for your book and win cash prizes of up to USD $500 for each contest.

  • Write a compelling book proposal based on an unpublished book idea
  • Submit your proposal by the 1st day of the contest month within the appropriate contest category for approval
  • Launch your 30-day book crowdfunding campaign by the first day of the contest month in order to be entered
  • Campaigns with the highest number of pre-orders for each contest will win USD$500
  • Each contest will have editors from traditional publishing houses that will judge proposals
  • Winners announced within two months of contest end date

In today’s digital age, we are inundated with stories and ideas seemingly as numerous as the stars. Though it has become absurdly easy to create and publish your own content, discovery remains a challenge in this data deluge.  Every author that successfully launches a campaign on Publishizer will have the opportunity to get published.

As a crowdfunding literary agency, our platform allows authors to increase engagement and interaction with their readers, as well as discover the best publisher for their book. As a marketplace for ideas, we present quality content for publishers, and information at the forefront of change to readers.
