To be eligible, writers and artists must be enrolled in at least one class at UAF during the 2022–23 academic year. The deadline to submit is December 9.

Ice Box has been UAF's campus literary journal for more than twenty years. It began as an informal publication edited by graduate students, then in 2001 transitioned into an annual print journal. Ice Box went on hiatus in the mid 2010s, but was revived as a print publication in 2019. The most recent issue, Volume #18, featured creative work from 27 UAF students. The journal was shared with university stakeholders, local high schools, and statewide arts organizations.
For the past two years, works from Ice Box have been selected for plain china, the national anthology of undergraduate writing. Ice Box is also an institutional member of FUSE, the Forum for Undergraduate Student Editors. In the spring semester, students in ENGL 475: Practicum in Literary Publishing will serve as the journal's editors. Previous issues are available for sale through the English Department.
