This struck a bell with me because of participating in creative writing workshops, in which we did read our own writing and profited from comments. I think that fundamentally, as is generally true, the crux is how something is said. Rather than saying a paper has no thesis, say that the thesis could be stated and substantiated more clearly, perhaps addressing some questions that could provide back up.
