Book Proposal Writing Contests

Don't just feed your stomach. Get ready for a smorgasbord of deliciously delectable tales, tantalizingly thrilling ideas, and all the glorious new flavours.

Reading is food for the heart, mind and soul. Here at Publishizer, we're passionate about finding and helping more authors get their books published. We strongly believe that there is an urgent need for more book diversity, so we’re proud to be hosting bi-monthly themed book proposal contests in 2017.

There are no entry fees or purchases required to join. For a chance to land a publisher for your book and a shot at the US$2000 cash prize for each contest:

  • Write a compelling 1000 word book proposal based on an unpublished book idea
  • Submit the proposal within the appropriate contest category for approval
  • Launch your campaign within the contest month to be entered into the 30-day book proposal contest

The campaign with the highest number of pre-orders for each contest wins US$1000-2000, though every author that successfully launches a campaign on Publishizer has a chance to get published! Needless to say, the more pre-orders you get, the more publishers will express an interested in acquiring your book.

Hungry for more? We are. Check back for the winner announcements!
