Luke Muyskens is a writer from St. Paul, Minnesota, now living in Los Angeles. He came to screenwriting from literary fiction after earning an MFA from Queen's University of Charlotte in 2016 and being named a Tin House Scholar in 2018. He has published work in West Branch, the Hopkins Review, SAND Berlin, New American Writing, Arts & Letters, a Pact Press anthology on the opioid epidemic, and more. He has participated in residencies including the New Orleans Writers Residency, the Lighthouse Writers Workshop, and the Hambidge Center.

Luke’s pilot, Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children, was featured in the New York City Showcase of the 2022 Yes, And… Laughter Lab.

Since 2019, Luke has completed scripts for ten pilots, a short film that is currently in post-production, and a feature film.

Luke’s screenwriting has earned him slots as a finalist for the 2023 ISA TV Pilot Pitch Challenge, a semifinalist for the 2022 Almanack Screenwriters October Colony and the 2022 ATX Television Festival Pitch Competition, and a second-rounder for the 2023 Sundance Development Track and the 2022 and 2023 ISA Fast Track Fellowship.
