=====

Desa Tamantirto, Kasihan, Bantul merupakan wilayah yang tanggap dalam menghadapi pandemi Covid-19. Ketanggapan warga tidak hanya ditunjukkan melalui penerapan protokal kesehatan dan penutupan sejumlah pintu gang ketika masa pandemi, tetapi juga didukung pada kesadaran akan pentingnya pewarisan pengetahuan dan pengalaman seputar pandemi kepada generasi mendatang. Melalui Tim Sistem Informasi Desa yang mereka miliki, mereka mengajak kerja sama dengan dosen Prodi Bahasa dan Sastra Indonesia FIB UGM untuk mengadakan kegiatan pelatihan penulisan feature seputar pandangan dan pengalaman warga selama pandemi. Pelatihan diselenggarakan dengan dua cara. Pertama, pelatihan secara langsung dengan media power point yang menguraikan definisi, jenis, contoh, dan teknik penulisan serta penyuntingan feature. Kedua, bimbingan penulisan melalui WA Grup ketika peserta mengirimkan karyanya ke grup WA dan narasumber memberikan masukan terhadap naskah tersebut. Pelatihan menghasilkan 21 naskah feature yang rata-rata menguraikan profesi para peserta dan mengaitkannya dengan pandemi. Sebagian besar naskah masih lebih banyak diisi dengan paragrat argumentatif dibandingkan menarasikan pengalaman selama pandemi sebagaimana layaknya feature yang cenderung naratif.
