THE YOUNG AND HUNGRY LIST 2013 – THE TOP 100 WRITERS ON THE VERGE!

Every year a new YOUNG AND HUNGRY LIST is compiled from across the industry, cultivating the top writers currently running with some heat, and landing on the most shortlists across town. The list focuses on the new voices and fresh blood hitting Hollywood and making names for themselves. All writers on these lists were voted on by some of the biggest film and television executives, producers, agents, managers, and directors. Some are much more established than others, but all of them are currently riding the buzz!

Check out what a few of our honorees have done since making the list!
