The Tysons Corner is a growing website, started in 2011, created to discuss the local issues specific to eastern Fairfax including the regions of Tysons Corner, Falls Church, McLean, Vienna, and Merrifield. Our goal is to provide a deeper analysis of progressive topics centered around the new urbanism concepts of a 21st century Northern Virginia. We have seen the region grow from a quiet suburban community to a cultural and economic contributor of the east coast rivaling other more established cities.
The area for many years grew without direction leaving a disconnected community of micro-developments without any coordinated design concept. Our goal is to create a unified, or at times cacophonous, voice of residents and interested parties to discuss what the future vision for the region could or should be. We look to fill the questions that many have and provide the depth of coverage that is difficult for regional news publications to provide.

We are currently looking for interested writers who are looking for a forum to discuss their ideas as a writer for TTC. This could be done as an exclusive TTC format or as a crosspost with other independent blogs. If you are interested in reaching a large base of readers specific to this region think about joining.
