Carnival Against Child Abuse: February 2011 Announcement
I am pleased to host this month's Carnival Against Child Abuse.
This month's theme:
The subject of "your truth" is an important one to survivors. For many, we struggle accepting our truth, doubting our truth, and even knowing what our truth is.
Submissions are due by Thursday, February 24th and I will publish on Saturday, February 26th.
Submit an article at: Blog Carnival Submissions
Why a theme? There are a lot of blogs and it's hard to keep up with all that we want to. Many have different takes on the same issue. So, it's nice to bring them all together. Think of it like a mini-magazine with a special topic.
Don't have an article related to the theme? That's okay. Because like any good magazine, there are other articles too! On the submission page you will be asked to pick a category of: Advocacy & Awareness; Aftermath; Art Therapy; Healing & Therapy; In the News; Poetry; or Survivor Stories. Also, your blog itself does not need to be about child abuse, just the post you are submitting.
If you are going to submit to the "Art Therapy" category using the theme of "your truth," I ask that you consider submitting it to the other Carnival I am hosting this month, Expressive Arts Carnival Activity No. 8. This month, I will be publishing both Carnivals separated only by a couple days, and they share the same theme.
You can feel free to submit older articles as there is no restriction on them needing to be new. In fact, sometimes it is nice to get reacquainted with what has come before. And you can submit more than one article.
I hope you submit an article (or two)! The blogging community has a lot to contribute on the subject of child abuse and healing. Let your voice be heard.

The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse is maintained by Tracie and 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 link to hopeful posts about therapy, recovery and healing from abuse. All forms of child advocacy and awareness are included.
