Below you will find guidelines to help you format your paper in MLA style. Although these guidelines are widely used in educational settings, it is always advised to follow the specific instructions given by your professor. More detailed information is available on the MLA Handbook Plus website, specifically the section Introduction to Formatting your Research Project
For all of the following instructions, always make sure to be consistent throughout your paper
Font - use a readable font or typeface (Examples: Arial or Times New Roman). The idea is to make your text clearly distinguishable from italics.
Size - choose between 11 and 13 points
Line Spacing - double-space your entire paper (header, quotations, notes, works cited list). Leave one space after the period of each sentence.
Indentation - first line of each paper should be .5 inches from left margin. Block quotations are .5 inches as well.
