Hi all,

Had a question regarding essay formatting that I was hoping someone could help me out with. When creating a new paragraph, should I (A) put an extra space between paragraphs with no indent or (B) have an indent and put no extra spaces between paragraphs?

Note: the directions ask for single spaced essays.

Thanks!

It's okay to put a line space in between major paragraphs just as you would when writing an essay for class. Whether or not you indent will depend on the overall format of your essay, i.e. whether you use block formatting or traditional formatting.

Here's a quick reference on MLA formatting that might help you out:
