help with writing my descriptive essay short story essays

Nichole,
The very first sentence in the entry above states, “The most common way to mark a short story title is to enclose it in quotation marks.”
Don’t underline a story; wrap it in quotation marks.

okay so im writing an essay over poems by walt whitman. would i use quotations or underline the name of one of his short poems in his book leaves of grass?

What about essays? Do they fall into the same category as short stories and articles?

Do you underline, italicize or quote short story titles

In my essay I am unsure if i should use quotation marks or underline the name of a short story

I’m not sure why, but The New Yorker puts quotation marks around everything, whether it’s a short story or a novel or a television show. I suppose the most important thing is internal consistency. If you use italics for one novel’s title, use italics for every novel’s title; don’t switch to quotation marks or underlining halfway through an article, or even in a different article of the same publication.

Ali, put song titles inside quotation marks.
Sarah, the rule that I learned long ago (and which you probably should double-check) is that one-act and other short plays take quotation marks, but longer plays take italics or underlining. This “rule” is consistent with the distinction between short stories (quotation marks) and novels (italics or underlining).
