This essay examines the results of peer editing workshop sessions that were specifically meant to enhance the cultural consciousness of young individuals regarding traditional societies. The workshops were done in an art community building in Sidoarjo East Java and in the Faculty of Humanities, Airlangga University Surabaya, and were followed by 30 participants from East Java and its surrounding. The importance of peer editing was emphasized as a collaborative approach to enhance writing proficiency, foster critical thinking, promote self-assessment, boost writing self-assurance, and develop effective communication talents. The concept of wayang, a form of traditional puppet theater, served as a unifying element for the participants' individual narratives. The workshop methodology encompassed several stages, including initial composition, participant grouping, thorough evaluation, constructive feedback, collaborative talks, and iterative revisions. The participants showed enhancements in their critical thinking and self-assessment abilities, as well as an improvement in their engagement with the writing process. Additionally, they experienced a boost in their confidence in writing through collaborative efforts and honed their collaborative and communication skills which are pertinent in the context of the digital era. The event emphasized the potential of cooperation in fostering critical thinking and enhancing writing abilities by integrating cultural heritage with contemporary approaches, so promoting the overall development and empowerment of participants.
