Pak Rohman Budijanto said that writing in journalism is different from journals. One relates to society, the other academically elitist. Writing an opinion piece in the mass media doesn’t even pay to pay. In contrast to placing ads that have to pay. The benefits of writing popular opinions include: self-actualization; name investment; charitable ideas and solutions; provide new information and tie knowledge with writing. Writing popular opinions in the mass media is self-study and self-testing. Writing in mass media to convince audiences with scientific standards and logical narratives. Convincing information to the public and explaining information to the public.

Some tips that can be used when writing popular opinions in the mass media are: warm and actual. Write an opinion based on the actual development information. Writing should not be cliché. Don’t repeat what’s already there. The novelty awaited by the community. Writing must be systematic, there is an outline, main idea per paragraph. Outlines make writers not forget important details.

After Mr. Rohman’s material was finished, the event continued with discussions and questions and answers. Mr. Satyaman DKV ITS asked a question. Everyday we design. Sometimes designers are required to write and publish what is made. How to write designs that we make without bragging? Sometimes we have to rewrite things that are not updated. How do you keep the writings as enjoyable as the warm and new food menus?
