Correct MLA Format
It is vital that you correctly format your essay according
to MLA conventions. Make sure to double-space all lines,
including the title and header. Include your last name and
page number at the top right of the header. Use 1”
margins. Make sure your title is formatted in the same
fashion as the body of the essay—do not use bold,
italicized, or underlined text in the title.
