The method applied in this research was experimental research. The research was conducted at SMP Al-Islam I Surakarta in the academic year of 2013/2014. The population of the research is the seventh grade students from regular classes of SMP Al-Islam I Surakarta. Two samples were taken by using cluster random sampling. The class VIIC was used as the experimental class and class VIIG as the control class. Each of classes consists of 36 students. In collecting the data, several steps were applied: (1) giving creativity test to know student’s level of creativity; (2) conducting teaching media to the students; (3) carrying out post-test; and (4) analysing the students’ writing skills. The data were obtained from creativity test and writing test. Furthermore, to analyse the data, the researcher applied descriptive and inferential statistics using ANOVA and Tukey test. The result of the research finding leads to the conclusions that: (1) the students who are taught using Visual Novel have same writing skills with those who are taught using Picture Slides. In other word, the use of Visual Novel is as effective as Picture Slides; (2) the students who have high creativity have better writing skill than those who have low creativity; and (3) there is an interaction between teaching media and students’ creativity in teaching writing for the seventh grade of SMP Al-Islam I Surakarta. Finally, the results of this research imply that in teaching writing, the teacher should make the students accustom to writing. The right decisions of teacher in teaching writing are important. The teacher must be wise to select effective media and the material itself. Visual Novel and Picture Slides have been proven to be an effective media in improving students’ writing skill. An effective media can be used to help the students to focus on the lesson. It’s because teaching media also influences the students’ creativity in teaching writing. Thus, it is recommended that in order to get maximum result and effect on students’writing skills, teacher are suggested to be more innovative in using various teaching media. For other researchers, it is hoped that these research findings can be used as a reference for future researches. Moreover other researchers mayconduct researchers viewed from other psychological aspects. Keywords: writing, Visual Novel, Picture Slides, creativity, experimental study
