Do they state anywhere how they define “newcomer”? Because Paul Cornell isn’t one. He has writing credits in comics since 1990, and his breakout comic book was (to my knowledge) Marvel’s WISDOM mini-series in 2006-2007.

Nothing against the guy at all, mind you–I’ll buy most anything with his name on it these days.
