IRP Voices is an annual magazine of arts and letters edited and published by and for the students of the Institute for Retired Professionals. In 2012, it was converted from a print to an online periodical. The content consists of fiction, poetry, and essays written by IRP members, and now also includes examples of our students’ fine art and photography. All members are invited to submit work, which is judged by our editorial committee. We try to publish the highest quality work while presenting an interesting variety of material. Successful contributors always include people who have never had their work published before, others who have been professional writers and artists, and the whole range between. Read and enjoy.
