UNS — The Indonesia Language and Literature Program Faculty of Cultural Studies (FIB) Universitas Sebelas Maret (UNS) Surakarta held creative industry training on language and literature. The event was held offline in the FIB UNS seminar room on Thursday (3/6/2021) with a limited participant. A writer, Han Gagas, was invited as a speaker.

In his material titled writing (creative) in today’s world, Han Gagas mentioned that everyone has a different objective in writing, from hobby, profession, existence, or even creative charity. “All of it is okay, as long as the writer happy. The bonuses of writing are generating income, have readers or fans, flexible working hours, awards, their work adapted to a movie, and can travel around Indonesia and even the world,” he explained.

He also shared the key or creative tips in the literature world, such as improving writing skills and reading patiently as research in writing. A writing idea must be original, not widely written, and has a strong premise. Writers should also adapt to the writing media, either printed, online, or conventional. Finally, they should follow the update on the recent technology.

“Then master the writing technique. They can hone it by writing diligently. They (writers) could make marketing breakthroughs as well,” Han Gagas explained.

He added that writer should open their writing with unusual style and serve exciting plots to keep readers reading. If they want to send their work to external media, writers should understand the character of each media and understand the style and taste of each editor. Han Gagas suggested early writers befriend fully-fledged writers to improve their knowledge of the writing world.

“Writing could make us eternal. Many works from deceased writers are still being read by people today. Write to entertain yourself and make it a habit without burdened by material achievement or a certain target. If your work becomes a bestseller, adapted to film, and goes around the world, that is a bonus from God,” he concluded. Humas UNS
