How do I cite a flyer sent to me by e-mail?

Note: This post relates to content in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. For up-to-date guidance, see the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook.

To cite a flyer or other advertisement found in an e-mail message, follow the MLA format template. Treat the advertisement as the work: List the title of the flyer or a description in place of a title. Then list the flyer’s publisher and the date. Place “E-mail” in the optional-element slot at the end of the entry to indicate the medium of publication:

“Year End Mid-Week Special.” Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa, 4 Dec. 2017. E-mail.
