upcoming june edition of the blog carnival against child abuse

i can't tell you all how excited i am to be hosting june's edition of the blog against child abuse. for those of you who don't know what it is, a blog carnival is a type of blog event. it is similar to an online magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic (in this case child abuse prevention and awareness). the blog carnival against child abuse is published monthly. each edition of the blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains permalinks to other blog articles on the topic. each edition is hosted on a different blog every month, and in june it is my turn to host it.

the theme for june's carnival coincides with father's day. many child abuse survivors have strong emotions tied to their parents. often times fathers and parents are the perpetrators in abusive situations. for a lot of survivors, father's day is a difficult day--sometimes worse than mother's day. on the other hand, sometimes in the case of children who have been abused parents can be a huge support. i look forward to reading submissions that are along this theme of fathers and parents in general.

in addition to the monthly theme there are several categories that are standard that we love to get submissions from. these are:
Advocacy & Awareness
Aftermath
Healing & Therapy
In the News
Poetry
Survivor Stories

you are more than welcome to submit a new post that goes along with the monthly theme or any of the categories. you are also more than welcome to submit an older post that you would like to share. the more submissions, the better!

to submit a post, go to the submission form. the blog carnival will post on friday, june 19th. the deadline for submissions is wednesday, june 17th. this gives you a few weeks to be thinking about what you would like to share.

i'd like to thank marj over at survivors can thrive for giving me the opportunity to participate by hosting this edition. if you'd like to see some of the past carnivals for some great reading and ideas, you can check out may's edition on her blog.

thank you in advance for your participation!
