When writing a college essay do you indent each paragraph?
You should generally indent each new paragraph within a section except the first. The logic behind this principle is that the first paragraph of a section – whether it be chapter, heading or sub-heading – is already distinguished as new. Subsequent paragraphs, on the other hand, should not be distinguished in any other way in academic writing than by first-line indentation.
You should also refer to the style manual recommended by your particular educational institution for your particular course. (Some styles even require a specific amount of indentation.)
