Port Townsend's Northwinds Arts Center hosts two poets for reading Thursday night

Peninsula Daily News

PORT TOWNSEND — The free Northwind Reading Series will bring poets Marci Ameluxen of Whidbey Island and Laura LeHew of Eugene, Ore., to the Northwind Arts Center on Thursday night.

There's no charge for the 7 p.m. reading at the center, 2409 Jefferson St., off Sims Way.

Ameluxen has penned Lean House, a poetry chapbook released in 2013 by MoonPath Press.

Her poems have appeared in Crab Creek Review, Rose Red Review, Hospital Drive and other journals.

“What informs my poetry is simplicity and intensity of experience,” Ameluxen said.

She also seeks “a stark, clean line. I like to see white space on the page.”

Ameluxen holds a bachelor's degree in political science, which she said convinced her to never run for elected office.

She works in pediatric occupational therapy.

LeHew is the author of a full-length book of poems, Willingly Will I Burn, two chapbooks, numerous articles and hundreds of poems in magazines and anthologies.

She interned for, and is a former board member of CALYX Press, an independent press focused on nurturing women's creativity.

She now runs Uttered Chaos Press, which offers writing and publishing workshops and publishes the Uttered Chaos Chapbook series.
