- 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.

Hello! My name is Sarah Smith, and I’m in the Couple and Family Therapy program at Antioch in Seattle. I spent several years working in orphanages in developing countries before moving to the west coast. Living in other cultures opened my eyes to the vast array of creative and beautiful ways there are to look at world and to articulate the human experience. I’ve always loved writing- as well as listening to (or reading) other people’s stories. Working at the VWC is an awesome opportunity to use my passions to help those in my academic community. I know that I personally benefit from the input of others after working on a piece of writing for hours. It helps me step outside my own head and get more perspective on how my writing is perceived by the reader. When I’m not reading psychology books or writing research papers, I explore the outdoors as much as possible!
