Typically, you structure MLA:

John Smith
Professor Adam Houser
English 105
3 December 2015

(Page Header: "Smith 1")

How would you arrange this for a co-written paper? I could not find any clear definitions online. My assumption is that it goes like this:

John Smith
Kayla Ellsworth
Professor Adam Houser
3 December 2015

(Page Header: "Smith & Ellsworth 1")

Is this how it works? I need help with the proper formatting.

In the current MLA style guide, there is no guidance for multiple authors on the title page. I would suggest following a similar format to the citation style, like this:

John Smith and Kayla Ellsworth
Professor Adam Houser
3 December 2015

And also using the same style as citations in the header:

Smith and Ellsworth 1

But this is just a suggestion.
