With support from the City of Beaverton Arts Program, Lucky Jefferson’s Discover Beaverton is the first (of many) community-based anthologies that utilize ekphrastic-style storytelling to capture the brilliance of our everyday communities.
In this publication, you’ll be delighted by poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, and art celebrating Beaverton, Oregon’s uniqueness! Writers and artists pay homage to Beaverton and invite those near and far to spark new connections to Beaverton.

“My experience of Beaverton is but one of many. Within the pages of this anthology, you are invited to step into the perspectives of some of the city’s local writers and artists, or those who have a connection with our community, to immerse yourself in the sites, landmarks, and businesses that give my hometown its many complex layers. This is no invisible city. I am no Marco Polo. You needn’t journey far for this adventure of discovery. You need only turn the page…”
