Writing skill is a very important language skill in order to be able to communicate well with others. Unfortunately, many students are not able to express their ideas in writing. This is due to the low competence they have in writing.. The lack of learning motivation and interest to the material given by the lecturer is one cause of students’ low writing competence. This situation occured in the fourth semester majoring in English Language and Literature STIBA Saraswati Denpasar.
