MLA In-Text Basics
|Quotation Marks||Unless you are citing a text that is more than four typed lines, end punctuation goes underneath quotation marks.|
|Block/Long Quotes||For block or long citations, start a new line and indent 1”; no quotation marks; and parenthetical goes after the end punctuation.|
|In-Text Citations||If author/title is named in a signal phrase, just follow the citation with page number(s) or act.scene.line number(s). EX: (1.2.34-42)|
|Paper Format||Upper Left: Your Name, Teacher’s Name, Course Title, Date. Double space; title; double space; indent; and begin first paragraph|
MLA Works Cited
For blog posts please link to alphanumeric sources, i.e. if you are citing The Tempest, link to an online database source. Be sure to link all images to the URL on which you found them.
