Rodong Sinmun Calls for Ushering in Heyday of Literature and Art of Songun Revolution
Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- The 9th national meeting of artistes held with splendor in Pyongyang on May 16 and 17 was a great assembly of creators and artistes which will be specially recorded in the history of the development of the Juche-oriented literature and art, says Rodong Sinmun in an editorial Monday.

It goes on:

The successful meeting helps pave a wide avenue for ushering in a shining renascence in the Juche-oriented literature and art in the new century by brining about a revolutionary turn in the creation of literary and art works.

Under the wise leadership of Marshal Kim Jong Un the spirit to make great leap forward and innovations has been fully displayed everywhere in our country and a new turn brought about in the field of literature and art.

If the creators and artistes fail to be sensitive to the idea and intention of the Workers' Party of Korea and have no daring will to keep pace with the forced march of the Marshal, it is impossible to make innovations in the field of literature and art.

Now is the time for all the creators and artistes to make strenuous efforts to unconditionally produce masterpieces required by the era and desired by the people.

The editorial calls upon all the leading officials, creators and artistes in the field of literature and art to bring about a radical turn in all fields of literature and art and usher in a heyday of literature and art of the Songun revolution under the leadership of the Marshal, cherishing deep in mind the pledge of faith they made before the party, motherland and people at the 9th national meeting of artistes.
