THE YOUNG AND HUNGRY LIST 2016 – THE TOP 100 WRITERS ON THE VERGE!

2016 Y&H Banner Image for TB 620x310 (1)

 Every year, a new Young & Hungry List is compiled from across the industry, proudly showcasing those writers most eager to stake their claim. Voted on by Hollywood’s most influential players, each list distinguishes a fresh slate of up-and-coming creatives preparing to take the next step in their careers. Whether it be a newcomer making their first big splash, a sophomore writer coming into their prime, or an established veteran returning to their roots, they all share one thing: the unrelenting drive to make their mark.
