2) No To Violence Survey

No To Violence<http://www.ntv.org.au/> (NTV) and the Men's Referral Service<http://www.mrs.org.au/> (MRS) are updating the organisations' communications and publications strategy. They are also reviewing how and where their publications might best be published. They are keen to learn how you value NTV/MRS information and resources. Given the rapidly changing ways people are accessing information, advice and support, they would also want to know how you would prefer to receive/access information from NTV and the MRS in the future. Please participate in the survey at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RQZBQBT. Thanks you for participating in this review of NTV and MRS publications.

3) Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Programming Survey

Stop it Now!<http://www.stopitnow.org/> would like you to complete a brief survey to help them understand your needs and interest in child sexual abuse prevention.  Your feedback will help them tailor their services and help them make a case for funding for prevention programming. The survey can be accessed at: http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e4w51mtjgsudw9ew/a0135h5owpei1/questions.

4) Call for Women's Trauma Stories for Anthology

Christine Stark and Fred Amram are seeking personal stories about trauma for an anthology. Trauma is defined widely, including witnessing and/or experiencing a traumatic event or events during genocide, war, sexual violence, domestic violence, race/gender/religious/sexual orientation-based violence, childhood abuse, natural catastrophes and more.

By sharing a diversity of stories, the editors expect to illuminate similarities among trauma survivors despite obvious differences of geography, culture, age, gender, and type of trauma. At an art workshop for survivors of violence and genocide, we noticed that survivors of genocides in Europe, Africa and Asia as well as sexual violence in the U.S. discovered profound connections with each other across boundaries.  This anthology is inspired by the post-trauma commonalities experienced by survivors.

The editors are looking for personal stories which examine impacts of traumatic experiences with significant literary merit. Previously published work is permissible but new work is much preferred. Submissions close: 1 December 2012. For more information, contact: trauma.book at yahoo.com<mailto:trauma.book at yahoo.com> or visit: www.christinestark.com<http://www.christinestark.com> and www.fredamram.com<http://www.fredamram.com>.
