Start your article here. No indent. Follow MLA guidelines all over.
Do not indent next paragraph. Don’t use two or three spaces etc. If you are quoting more than one
line, use the following style for including citations:
Quotations with fewer than four lines of prose or three lines of verse are quoted
directly in the sentence. Enclose them in quotation marks, followed by the
author’s last name and the page or pages of the source from which you are
quoting in parenthesis, for example: “inline quotation here” (Author’s Surname
321).
Quotations that are longer than four lines of prose or three lines of verse follow different
guidelines. Keep the citation in indented form. Use single tab. Introduce the quotations with a
colon:
Start long quotations on a new line. Indent the quote one inch from the left
margin. Double-space the lines and omit quotation marks. Reference the source as
you would for a shorter quotation. To quickly format a quotation of over four
lines or three lines of verse, use the Long quotation style.
As per MLA guidelines, all sources must be listed on a Works Cited page at the end of the paper.
Center the title, Works Cited, and then list sources in alphabetical order by author last name.
Some examples are provided. To format sources, start with the Works cited style provided in
below but refer to the MLA at http://www.mla.org for complete formatting guidelines.
