We like to hear from OCs

There are about 960 OCs registered on this mailing list, of which approximately 30% regularly open and read the emails that we send out. This dedicated readership is what keeps us going and makes it worthwhile to do what we do at the OCA Website.

Only a few, very few, OCs send in their writings or stories or school-time memories. You can access the full list that already exists on the OCA Website via this link.

We are asking all of you to send in and share anything you want with other Old Cottonians to appreciate and enjoy. 

Now more than ever before, due to the restricted lifestyle in the times of COVID19, would be a great time to enrich lives with your contribution.

Send in a piece of writing or verse, a memory from your school days, a photograph or two, a sketch/painting, a piece of your own recorded music, lyrics that you wrote, a link to a documentary or video clip that you have already shared on YouTube or elsewhere. As long as this material is free of copyright, is actually owned by you, or that you have permission to share it. We reserve the right to publish or not to publish without assigning a reason, to edit or moderate, to delete or refuse any which is inappropriate / contains nudity / is racist in nature / abusive. Thank you.

Email it to editor@oldcottonians.org or if the file is very large – use a free web-based sending utility such as https://wetransfer.com/


Best wishes
