Now Accepting Submissions for the July 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, to art and 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 July edition of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse will be hosted here, at From Tracie

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

The deadline for submissions is July 27th, and I'm excited to see what y'all share this month. You can submit something written especially for this edition, but please feel free to submit an older post as well. 

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.


  1. thanks Traci...for the reminder....It's awesome that so many of us are standing up..telling our stories....for so long the shame kept me silent...blaming myself. The blog carnival reminds me I'm not alone. Have a great weekend.

  2. Just submitted my entry. Thanks very much for hosting this month.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog so I could get to know yours. I actually have a post about child abandonment which, to me, is abuse. Don't know if it would qualify but is such a huge problem outside of the United States.

  4. I've submitted mine, and I'd love to host the carnival sometime. Just let me know what I need to do.

  5. For anyone that is new and doesn't know, you can submit more than one post in each Carnival issue. I usually submit 3 average. Last month was so busy for me that I only got one in.

    Thank you Tracie for hosting this and for running it from behind the scenes. Appreciate you and the work that you do to keep this Carnival Against Child Abuse going.

  6. What a wonderful idea!

    I just found your blog from a comment you left on mine. I am now a new follower!

  7. I'm a little late, but here is mine: It belongs in the advocacy/awareness category.

  8. Thanks for hosting this month, Tracie. I've been away from the blogosphere, but just saw your notice in time to get something in right before the deadline. Yeah!
