Hello,

The MLA handbook does not provide an example for this type of situation. You will need to ask your instructor where she copied the short story from and use the original publication information in your works cited page. Here is an example: 

"A Witchcraft Story." The Hopi Way: Tales from a Vanishing Culture. Comp. Mando Sevillano. Flagstaff: Northland, 1986. 33-42. Print.

If your instructor does not have that information, you can consider citing the work this way -- but check with your instructor first: "A Witchcraft Story." Photocopy. N.d. N. p. Print.

If you just want to refer to the title of the story within your paper, you will refer to it as "A Witchcraft Story" (story) within the text of your paper.

Sincerely, Eileen Oliver, Librarian
