Works Cited Page Formatting

This includes information for the Fiction and Poetry essays in my spring 2017 semester ENG 1002 class, but can also serve as an example for my LIT 2013 class. First off, here’s the main page about “Creating Works Cited Entries” link from IVCC’s Stylebook, and here’s a sample Works Cited page. Note the hanging tab (that extra indented white space before the extra lines of each entry) and how all the entries are alphabetized. Here’s how to format a hanging tab.

Fiction Essay Works Cited Page

Students are required to include the primary source (chosen short story), secondary academic source (Gale database article), and the editors of the textbook if you’re including information taken from the cultural context.

The below examples DO NOT include hanging tab formatting (that’s a nightmare for a blog) and are categorized as primary source, secondary source, and textbook cultural context
