The Top Cow Talent Hunt is now live, with folk like the excellent Ryan Cady answering questions on the new official thread.
You can find the official thread for 2016 here; http://community.comicbookresources.com/showthread.php?56132-OFFICIAL-Top-Cow-Talent-Hunt-2016-Discussion-Thread

I would encourage both aspiring writers and artists to take part in the Talent Hunt. There is also a wonderful sense of community spirit on the message boards, so if you are participating, I would also encourage you to post and connect with your peers online.
Good luck to all of you.
