Mla format essay rules

MLA format is one of the major writing styles used in academic and professional writing. When writing an MLA paper, keep in mind the following stylistic rules.

To summarize, you want to be focused in what you say. Your paper should be set-up to adhere to MLA guidelines: margins should be 1-inch around; paragraphs indented correctly; proper spacing between lines and sentences; correct perspective and voice used; and finally correct grammar used. Don't let the words you say drown in a sea of mechanical difficulties. Presentation is just as important as content.
