Select a quote from the short story you will be using for your fiction essay, and then write it here as if you were putting it into your paper. Remember, there are three things you need to do when incorporating a quote into an essay:
1. Introduce it (with a small introductory phrase or by connecting it to the sentence before with a colon).
2. Cite it (using an MLA in-text citation with the author’s last name and page # or just page #).
3. Discuss its relevance. (A quote is just like a plot point–you must explain it’s significance to your reader.)
