Example of an mla essay

An example of an essay written in MLA style would adhere to the Modern Language Association's guidelines for formatting and citing sources. The essay would be double-spaced on standard-sized paper (8.5" x 11") with 1" margins on all sides. The font would be 12-point Times New Roman and it would include a header with the student's last name and page number in the upper right corner of each page.

The first line of each paragraph would be indented one-half inch. The title of the essay would be centered, typed in 12-point Times New Roman font and not bolded, italicized, underlined, or in quotation marks. The introduction of the essay would include the student's thesis statement which should identify the main points of the essay.

In-text citations of sources used throughout the essay would be included, following the MLA formatting standards. All sources cited throughout the essay should be included in a Works Cited page at the end of the essay. Sources should be listed in alphabetical order by author's last name, or if no author is given, by the title of the work.

Finally, punctuation and spelling should be double-checked for accuracy. Following these guidelines will help ensure that an essay written in MLA style is correctly formatted and has a professional appearance.
