The VWC provides free peer feedback on writing for Antioch University students. We support your writing process from start to finish!
- Outlining and Planning: Submit your outlines and notes for feedback on ideas.
- Major Revision: Submit your initial drafts, and even incomplete drafts, for big picture feedback on thesis, structure, organization, integration of sources, and so on.
- Minor Revision: Submit your 2nd or 3rd drafts to work on paragraph structure, clarity, conciseness, syntax, and other sentence-level feedback.
- Style and Polish: Submit your near-final drafts for suggestions about APA or MLA, word choice, grammar, and other procedural edits.
To take advantage of peer feedback from the VWC, just click the login link for your campus or program under “Submit Your Writing” on the right. Also check out “About the VWC” on the left to learn more about the feedback process.
Many thanks to Alan Butler, one of our veteran consultants from the AUS PsyD program, who is leaving the VWC to focus on completing his dissertation.
In reflecting on his many years as a part of the VWC team, Alan wrote: “I think that reading other people’s work every week, trying to identify what I felt could be worked on, and looking for resources to explain writing concepts taught me to consider my own work and how it could be improved. Being at the VWC helped me to see the value in getting feedback on my own writing and changed my writing process from an activity I performed alone to one where I frequently ask others for help and suggestions. I also could not have asked for a more interesting and diverse group of people to work with!”
Thanks, Alan, for all your contributions to the VWC over the years!
