Capitalization of Story and Poem Titles

One more thing I'd like to ask of you in the next few days: review your titles and make sure you have titled your writings as you want them titled.

How should titles be capitalized? Here are the rules for you:

1. First and last word are always capitalized.

2. Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and subordinate conjunctions* should always be capitalized

3. The following should always be lowercase, unless they are first or last word: articles, coordinate conjunctions** and prepositions

* common subordinate conjunctions: as, because, although
** common coordinate conjunctions: and, or, nor

If you're not sure about a title (either you can't figure out whether a word should be capitalized, or you're thinking about changing the title), you can post it here and ask others to advise you.
