Accepting Submissions for the October Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse

I will be hosting the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse for October. We are going theme-less this month, but all of the regular categories will be open:

-Advocacy and Awareness
-Healing and Therapy
-In the News
-Survivor Stories
-Art Therapy

The purpose of the Carnival Against Child Abuse is to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse. All forms of abuse - physical, emotional, sexual, spiritual, verbal - are discussed. We highlight blog posts from child abuse survivor stories, survivor art and poetry, child abuse as a topic in the news media, as well as PTSD, dissociation and other areas of the abuse aftermath that adult survivors are forced to deal with. We link to hopeful posts about therapy, recovery, and healing from abuse. All forms of child advocacy and awareness are included. 

I'm looking for new posts that you have written specifically for the carnival, or an old post from your archive. You are not limited to just one submission!

You can submit your posts here using the form, or you can email your links to me at 

I'll be taking submissions until midnight Wednesday, October 20th and the carnival will be posted on Friday the 22nd. 

Thank you! I'm excited to read all of your fabulous submissions this month.


  1. Hey, you got your announcement post up! Thanks, Tracie. And I just went over to Blog Carnival dot com and updated the October listing over there. Looking forward to you hosting again--you did such an awesome job last time. :)

  2. I'm very emotional about my advocacy for children. I hope the blogathon reaches lots of people. I can't think of any blog posts I have offhand that would be suitable.

  3. Was just thinking about this today and in the mood to write some more..

  4. This hits very close to home for me since my step-son was abused by his birth mom. I have got a whole lot to say on this topic. I will put something together for this!
