Luke Muyskens - SJU, Class of 2014

After graduating from St. John's in 2014, I enrolled in the Queens University of Charlotte Low Residency MFA: Latin America program. Since earning my MFA in 2016, I have published fiction and poetry in more than 20 journals, including Third Coast, West Branch, SAND Berlin, New American Writing, and the Hopkins Review. I have received scholarships to residencies at the Hambidge Center, the New Orleans Writers Residency, and the Tin House Summer workshop. I am currently working on several television pilots and seeking representation for my television writing. I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the St. John's English Department faculty (Jessica Harkins, Luke Mancuso, and Matt Callahan to name a few) for identifying talent I couldn't always see myself and for encouraging me to take risks in pursuit of a writing career.
