Calls: Article on the Theme of Inspiration in Your Language

I am looking for native speaking language experts to contribute a
short 300 word article/essay, on the meaning of the word for
"Inspiration" in their language of expertise. This is for inclusion in
an art book I am writing entitled "The Spirit of Inspiration".

The article would include aspects of the following about the nature of
inspiration in your language of expertise; the definition, etymology,
how it is expressed in the arts and your personal insights about

For more information, I have created a detailed submission guideline
with a sample article which you can view at this URL;

I would like to have at least 50 different languages represented in
the book, so I am trying to spread the word to as many different
language experts as possible. I would be most grateful for any:
 * referrals to other language experts and teachers.
 * email lists that I could post to.
 * other suggestions for how to get the word out.
Feel free to forward this information to anyone you think may be interested in

If you have any questions please contact me.
Thank you so much for you time and consideration.
