Call for Submissions for the July Issue of the Art History Carnival

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful summer so far! We just got back from a trip to Jasper National Park yesterday. It was just gorgeous, and June turned out to be a perfect time to go (also, we're expecting another baby in August, so I wanted to go while I was still able to do a bit of hiking). I will have to share some pictures as soon as I get them off the camera! 

The July edition of the Art History Carnival  will be posted on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 (to give a little break to both Americans and Canadians). You can submit articles for inclusion in the carnival until 48 hours before the issue comes out (Monday, July 4th).

What kind of blog articles will be included? 
Posts covering all periods and art mediums are welcome, as are posts discussing art criticism, architecture, design, theory and aesthetics. All submissions will be carefully reviewed, so please, no spam. 

What is a Blog Carnival? 
According to Wikipedia, a blog carnival is "a type of blog event...similar to a magazine, in that it is dedicated to a particular topic, and is published on a regular schedule, often weekly or monthly. Each edition of a blog carnival is in the form of a blog article that contains permalinks links to other blog articles on the particular topic." 

Blog Carnivals are a great way to help your blog reach a new audience and to make new friends in the blogosphere! 

Who can submit? 
Anyone, as long as you have a blog! And If you don't blog, you can submit one of your friend's articles (except they better be good--I'll be reading them!). 

Can I host a carnival? 
Absolutely! Please let me know if you'd be interested in hosting the next issue of the carnival. 

How to submit articles
You have two options:

1. Use the submission form provided by Blog Carnival (this is easiest!). 
2. Send me an email. Include the title and permalink URL of the post you are nominating for inclusion in the carnival, along with the name of the blog. Please put "Art History Carnival" in the title of your email to help me recognize it in my inbox! 

One final thing to keep in mind: 
To keep things current, posts should have been written after the date of the last Carnival. If a post is six months old, I won't be able to include it in the Carnival, no matter how great it is.

Thank you for your participation! Share the news if you know someone who likes to write about art!

Congratulations on your pregnancy, Margaret! How exciting! If you need me to host the carnival for a month (or two!) after the baby arrives, please let me know. I'll be sure to submit an entry for the July carnival.

As always, thanks for hosting.

Hi Monica! Thanks for the comment. I will definitely try to keep in touch with you about the Carnival. I'm due the end of August, so I will definitely be looking for someone to take over the September issue, and your first in line! Have a great week!
