Short works include newspaper and magazine articles, poems, short stories, songs, episodes of television and radio programs, and chapters or subdivisions of books. Use quotation marks around the titles of short works. Although words used as words are ordinarily italicized, quotation marks are also acceptable. Be consistent throughout your paper.
