General MLA Paper Formatting Guidelines

 Type your paper on a computer and print it out on standard, white 8.5 x 11-inch paper.

 Double-space the text of your paper, and use a legible font (e.g. Times New Roman). Whatever

font you choose, MLA recommends that the regular and italics type styles contrast enough that

they are recognizable one from another. The font size should be 12 pt.

 Leave only one space after periods or other punctuation marks (unless otherwise instructed by

your instructor).

 Set the margins of your document to 1 inch on all sides.

 Indent the first line of paragraphs one half-inch from the left margin. MLA recommends that you

use the Tab key as opposed to pushing the Space Bar five times.

 Create a header that numbers all pages consecutively in the upper right-hand corner, one-half

inch from the top and flush with the right margin. (Note: Your instructor may ask that you omit

the number on your first page. Always follow your instructor’s guidelines.)
