Rm8sal began writing seriously in 2000 and remembers that the experience was a portal opening to another side of her being
She first discovered the Late Night Poets Room by Invitation and thinks it is a needed venue for online poets
She feels that the LNP Poets are serious about their poetry reading and writing and finds it a pleasure to read the varied styles.
The most valuable experience re: my time in LNP is reading and enjoying other poets whenever she can attend.
My name is Madeline Salvaggio, you probably know me best by Sal or Rm8sal
I am 88 years old and I live in the Northeast in a lovely seaside village with my loving husband .
I always loved writing as a young girl and was involved with school newspapers and year books I also wrote short stories etc. etc.
However, life has a way of changing the order of things.
After marriage, my priority became my family- (6 boys 2 girls my only claim to fame)
I involved myself in other pursuits as time allowed such as painting and being involved with exhibiting my art.
In Later years…..I proof read for a local newspaper, and ran my own business for a time.
Now retired, my computer is my latest addition,
I am now able to pursue my passion for writing and painting and
have the time to do it-( did I say that?) my nest is empty
I love our family gatherings with our wonderful Grandkids.
I have been published in Poetic Voices, and Primetime Magazine-(a local weekly), as well as in an Anthology Published by Poet Works Press called “A Nickel full of Dreams”. I also published a chapbook called “Poetic Visions” and I am in the process of writing another
