Accepting Submissions for the November 2011 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, disassociation and other areas of 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 November edition of the Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse will be hosted here, at From Tracie. Our theme is Surviving Holidays.

The big holiday season is coming up, and with it a lot of increased family interaction and triggers. Or maybe no family interaction at all, which comes with its own set of issues. I want to hear what you do to stay safe through the holidays, or what you plan to do different this year. Or maybe a good holiday memory - something encouraging!

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 November 23rd, and the carnival will be posted on the 25th. 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 might 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. Wow, this is awesome. I work with kids who are victims of abuse, is that a perspective that can be included? (I totally respect if you all are just collecting stories of surival). Anyway, awesome advocacy and awareness work!

  2. Hi Tracie,

    I know your life has been busy lately and noticed you didn't have a blog carnival listed for this month. I stopped in to ask if you were able to do a carnival this month or next and to volunteer to host for next month, if you need someone. Let me know.

    I submitted my holiday coping resource page for the carnival and will try to write a new post to be submitted before the deadline as well. Good and healing thoughts to you.
