Rounding up Rattlesnakes

November is pushing its way through my semester, and as my sparse blog posts indicate, I have been a bit behind in grading papers, creating lesson plans, and working on my own writing.  However, I did want to provide a quick link to the newest issue of Stirring:A Literary Collection where my poem, “To the Youngest Girl at the Rattlesnake Roundup” has been published.   Rattlesnakes, with the strange lore that sometimes haunts their sections of the rural world, make up an interesting part of  my Pennsylvania landscape.  Rattlesnake Roundups are very controversial and many groups are fighting to disband them.   However, in my world, believe it or not, Rattlesnake Roundups were more family affairs. like the one held in Noxen, Pennsylvania.
