Now Accepting Submissions for the June 2011 Edition of the Blog Against Child Abuse

The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is a monthly event. Its purpose 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 and their art & poetry, to 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 also link to hopeful posts about therapy, recovery and healing from abuse. All forms of child advocacy and awareness are included.

The June edition of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse will be hosted at Leslie's Illusions

Our theme this month is Healing. Leslie's announcement post has some questions about healing. They are questions that are on her heart, but I think they are questions that are important for all of us to think about. 

All of our regular categories will also be open:
-Advocacy and Awareness
-Healing and Therapy
-In the News
-Survivor Stories
-Art Therapy

The deadline for submissions is June 22nd, and I'm excited to see what y'all will share this month. You can submit something written especially for this edition, but please feel free to submit an older post as well. 

This month will mark the fifth anniversary of this carnival! It is beautiful to think of all of the healing that has happened, and the stories shared, and the support received over the past five years. I feel very blessed to be a part of it. 

If you are interested in hosting an upcoming edition of the carnival, please let me know! 
The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the serious issue of child abuse and to share important posts with others who may not be frequent readers of an author's blog, and expose one's work to a wider audience. There are so many wonderful bloggers who are contributing to the cause of ending and recovering from child abuse. If you, as a reader or author, know of other blogs that you find helpful, please encourage them to submit to an upcoming issue of the Carnival Against Child Abuse; and please bookmark that page so we can continue to receive high quality submissions from a wide swath of bloggers.
