FDU MFA Alum Jeff Vasishta Interviews Novelist Dana Spiotta at Interview Magazine

Jeff V
As a music journalist Jeff Vasishta spent over two decades interviewing a slew of legends. Prince, Beyonce, Dr. Dre, Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones are a few of the people who have been quizzed by him. Writing for Billboard, yahoo.com and the British publication “Blues & Soul”, Jeff realized that in order to grow as a writer he had to step out of his comfort zone of entertainment journalism. He’d long harbored a desire to write fiction and so after completing his undergrad at the New School as part of the Riggio Writing and Democracy program and his MFA at Fairleigh Dickinson, he has recently completed his first novel, “Famous Last Words” fittingly enough about a music journalist who gets the chance to interview a musical hero.

Jeff is still an active journalist, writing Op-Ed pieces for AM New York and NY Newsday and Feature stories for Interview Magazine.

Read his latest interview at Interview Magazine, a Q&A with Dana Spiotta.
