First Grade Schoolhouse: Zoo Animals Writing and Field Trip
The Babel Zoo Writing Emporium was formed from the fallen industrial empire of the exiled, and infamously baffling, Babel Brothers… or as a gathering for eccentric writers. I can'۪t really remember. Anyhow… it exists!
Its primary function is to unite together the best writing talent of a generation, in order to subvert the theocratic hegemony of old people. Mostly, however, its members just write silly poems, prose and plays, and take part in weird writing games.
Each year the Babel Zoo takes on a new focus: in 2014 we were The Last Poets; in 2013 we published a collaborative novella, The First Year of Trouble at Bannside High, for Amazon Kindle:
This year we are exploring the innate urge of expression, as:
The Babel Zoo meets in room 11 on the Lodge Road site, every Friday, at lunchtime.
Membership Requirements: Only GCSE/Alevel English Literature Students can apply for membership. If you wish to attend, then you should speak with Mr Pepin. If you pass the entrance test, then you commit yourself to writing and reciting. Good luck!

I’ve recently finished researching and writing an essay about the zoo, based on the Wheeler Centre/Melbourne Zoo writing fellowship I did at the end of last year. This ended a huge stint of reading mostly zoo-related fiction and non-fiction, and all of a sudden I was at liberty to read whatever I wanted. So obviously I read a book about animals. New habits die hard, or something. Anyhow, I picked this up because obviously Sedaris is fun, and I needed something fun and light. The last book I read for research was a long novel that was far out of my comfort zone (i.e. I hated it), so I wanted just to ease back into leisure reading.
