The sample was 34 students taken by cluster random sampling technique. The instruments in collecting the data were questionnaire and tests. The questionnaire was used to collect the data of writing interest; while the objective test was used to collect the data of vocabulary mastery; and the essay test was used to collect the data of writing skill. The techniques which were used to analyze the data were Pearson Product Moment and Multiple Correlations. The result of this study shows that (1) there is a positive correlation between writing interest and writing skill (rx1y = 0.680 >rt = 0.339); (2) there is a positive correlation between vocabulary mastery and writing skill (rx2y = 0.846 >rt = 0.339); (3) there is a positive correlation between writing interest, vocabulary mastery simultaneously and writing skill (Ry12 is 0.889 and Fo = 58.692 > Ft = 3.32). Based on the result of the study, it is known that the first hypothesis saying that there is a positive correlation between writing interest and writing skill is accepted. The second hypothesis saying that there is a positive correlation between vocabulary mastery and writing skill is also accepted. Meanwhile, the third hypothesis saying that there is a positive correlation between writing interest, vocabulary mastery simultaneously and writing skill of the tenth grade students of SMA Negeri 1 Karanganyar in the academic year of 2012/2013 is also accepted.
