Your page should be double-spaced (1.5 line spacing is also fine) and you should format your page with a clear font (Arial and Times New Roman are the most commonly used) and a font-size that will be easily read (for instance, 11 in Arial, 12 in Times New Roman). Up at the top of the first page, the titles of stories and chapters are usually in bold. When you mention them, you will need italics for the titles of books, films, CDs, magazines and newspapers. The convention for a long time has been to put the titles of articles, short stories and songs in single speech marks, but the music press has begun to italicise song titles in recent years, so you’ll have to play that one by ear.
