Transcript Want Fries With That? Award-winning Professor Ed Hirsch is a former college football jock who hangs out at fast-food restaurants. He also writes poetry. Hirsch,37, who has been teaching in the Creative Writing Program for over two years, says he likes to go into McDonald's and a few other fast-food restaurants because it gives him an "office" to go to in the morning just like everybody else. "I like having activity going on around me when I work," Hirsch said. "It gives me a sense of connection to the world." Teaching both undergraduate and graduate courses in poetry and fiction keeps Hirsch pretty busy. He says he gets tremendous pleasure from teaching undergraduate courses. "I'm amazed at how eager the students are to learn," he said. "It's so gratifying to watch their poems get better so radically." Some of his students say that he's "hard to get a hold of' or "never in his office," but they know where to look for him."Sometimes they manage to track me down at McDonald's," Hirsch smiles. "You know, there's nothing like a student who wants a conference then and there." Although most of his creative work is done in restaurants, Hirsch also writes at home. He revises his work on a typewriter at home, where he had a large study with ceiling- high bookshelves filled with thin volumes of poetry. "I'm not like other writers who are attached by the hip to their word processors," Hirsch said. "I write in long-hand so I have the freedom to go wherever I want." Before coming to Houston, Hirsch taught English and creative writing at Wayne State University in Detroit. He says he feels fortunate to be able to earn a living by teaching. "It's almost impossible to earn a living as a poet," Hirsch says. "No one in America does today." — Pilar Chapa John Abraham Marc Adams Kendrick Allen Deron Arnold Kimberly Arnold J u N I O R S Mark Babin Chris Barnshaw Farokh Bayegan John Bethel Allen Bettis William Blacklock Rhonda Boehm Pierre Brayton Louisito Brotamonte Sharon Catney Brent Chipley Jeanne Chucle Karen Collura John Cravero Julian Crews jr, SI. m \v m 94 The University Of Houston
