My suggestion is to start a blog for your class and give the login details to all your students.

They can post their writing on the blog and comment on each other's writing. You can log in and make corrections using the 'edit' feature or even get the students to do peer-to-peer corrections.

Writing software can be quite tricky when the students need to practice freewriting. My company develops writing practice materials for business English, but it's not free, of course.

You can use the student message boards here at eslcafe.com to set assignments in writing. It's fun because it's like a class assignment but outsiders can join in.

Also, it's useful to go over the spelling and grammarcheck features of Microsoft Word with them, and showing them how to use it properly.

Internet gives you very good chance to create multiple tasks for the students. Depending on the level of education it can be regular reports on some “hot” issues like political situation and economic news, some small research with a lot of citations (Internet gives a lot of ways to get proper information to create an essay, article etc.), creating a blog (as it was suggested earlier).

Few skills are more important to a students' success in and out of the class room than writing skills. If you want your students to improve their writing skills, then it is very important to teach them to use exact language. Using of unclear language weakens writing, so if students are taught to use specific words in sentences, their writing will improve. Now days, there are many sites to help the students for improving their writing skill.
