Where To Find Examples Of Essays Written In The MLA Style

MLA style is actually not a hard format to work with when you are writing an essay but there are some general rules about how you need to set up your essay.  The first thing that you need to know is that you don’t have a title page for this kind of essay but you do put your name, instructors name, course, and date flush left at the top of your essay and your last name and page number in the right hand corner of each page in the header.

All subtitles are centers and quotes don’t have quotations but are indented on each line.  And like every research paper the last section of your paper is the references of where you go your work and don’t forget to put you in text citations in as well.
