I have been asked to think about a session for the FALL 96 CRLA conference on
the topic of teaching writing via the modem.  So I definitely think that
there is an interest in writing. Certainly Learning Assistance Centers deal
with writing issues - although this year at our college we now have a
separate writing center from the Learning Assistance Center and we are still
trying to work out the overlap.  Students are confused!

I would encourage you to go for a round table discussion.
