PORT TOWNSEND — A Port Townsend poet, the author of “You Ask Me to Talk About the Interior” and a contributing editor at Outside magazine will participate in Northwind Arts Center’s reading series at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Matthew Nienow, Carolina Ebeid and Abe Streep will present their work at the center at 701 Water St.
