Two prominent and challenging tasks that teachers need to develop student’s writing skill is teaching the‘'appropriate materials’’ as well as facilitate them for writing publication. This paper will describe my ‘’on-going’’ experience in developing student’s writing skill through the teaching of journal writing. I also offer co-authorship for selected articles to get published. This might reflect something that is believed to serve ‘’mutual reflection for writing’’ (Morrison, Wunker & Zwicker, 2011). The teaching of journal writing is instrumentally intended as one of ways to implement the instruction of the Directorate General of the Ministry of Education and Cultures of RI (Santoso, 2012) with regard to ‘’compulsory publication’’ for undergraduate students. Aside from that, academically it is projected to develop student’s writing skill. Furthermore, it is the form of the follow up of our published article (see Irham & Wahyudi, 2012). Irham and I worked together to improve his undergraduate thesis, and got it published in Language Discourse and Society December 2012 issue. It is relatively new international journal with reasonable rejection rate that Renandya(2012) suggests.
