Book Proposal Contests

2021

Ideas that capture our sense of wonder and curiosity

Publishizer is proud to host a series of non-fiction book proposal contests to capture the next round of wonderful titles in 2021. We invite authors to share their ideas and stories that help others in our own journeys to inspire us to explore, dream, and discover more.

Curiosity is a quality related to inquisitive thinking such as exploration, investigation, and learning, evident by observation in the human species. Curiosity is heavily associated with all aspects of human development, which derives the process of learning and the desire to acquire knowledge and skill. 

Given half a chance, we’d much rather take the captain's seat than the armchair. Nothing can replace the intensity of authentic experience. It's more about a departure from a port and putting the sails in position to catch the wind, rather than detailing every aspect of what might come up. And when all seems to be against you, remember, the storm only comes to teach you how to skillfully sail your ship until you reach calmer waters again. 

Experience needs shape and wisdom and behind every great adventure are the stories that inspired it. Yet, looking back is easy. Seeing what has been done before and repeating it doesn't take as much courage as imaging a future and taking the bold first steps to creating something new. We all have this inner sense of adventure, but not all of us have the nerve or spirit to act on it.

"We are all born in a little port but not all of us sail the vast oceans! The majority remains in the port!,"  says the novelist and thinker Mehmet Murat Ildan.

Fortunately, not all of us have to leave port. We read books that seize imaginations and rattle our sedentary lives. After all, long and intense voyages require careful planning and preparation. You do not have to be caught in the middle of a fearsome storm for the sea to claim you. Most things need strategic decision-making based on wind, weather, currents, tradewinds, Hurricane season, work schedules, and more.

Your mind is a ship. It can sail across the universe in your own unique way. Go towards hope and inspiration. Have wonder and seek surprise from something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. No matter what winds you face or that others may create against you, you can adjust your sails to navigate and continue your travels.
