The 'Anderson's Oddities' creative writing competition was organised jointly by the Department of Creative Writing and the Media and Corporate Communications team, and was open to all students and staff of the University of Strathclyde. Entrants had to submit an original poem or piece of prose inspired by the University's collection of historic scientific instruments, many of which had been bequeathed by its founder, John Anderson. The competition was launched on 12 February 2014 and a selection of the instruments was displayed on Levels 3 and 5 of the Andersonian Library until the closing date. The winning authors read out their entries and received their prizes at an evening event in the Archives and Special Collections reading room on 19 June 2014.
