How can I create an MLA block quote in Microsoft Word?

To create a correctly formatted block quote in Microsoft Word, follow these steps:

  1. Hit Enter at the beginning and end of the quote.
  2. Highlight the quote and select the Layout menu.
  3. On the Indent tab, change the left indent to 0.5″.

Do not put quotation marks around the quote, and make sure to include an MLA in-text citation after the period at the end.
