Formatting Your MLA Paper
MLA formatted papers do not require a cover page. Margins should be one inch on both sides and at the top and bottom of the page. Double space the entire paper, including quotations, notes, and works cited. The type face should be 12 point in an easily readable font. The heading consists of your name, instructor's name, course name and number, and date. A running head with your last name and page number should appear on every page. Follow any special formatting requirements your instructor requires.
