Keeping up with Terrance Hayes
The poet, professor, and MacArthur grant recipient on what it means to follow your bliss
Terrance Hayes '94 is often asked for advice. When you’re an award-winning poet teaching college classes in creative writing, it kind of comes with the territory.
His favorite response is short: “Follow your bliss.” It’s a popular Joseph Campbell quote, and those three simple words really resonate with Hayes. “If you do the thing you love, success will always follow,” he says. “Of course,” he adds, “you’ve got to really love it.”
“He stayed and patiently helped me understand the lesson to the point where I was the one suggesting it was getting late,” Mack says.
