It was mentioned elsewhere that the categories for writing were a bit unobvious. Re that question, I was taught that prose was any writing that followed standard grammar and punctuation and nothing else. Anything with meter, rhyme, or physical structure (like lists) was excluded.
But, that thought led me to another, more serious, deficiency. There is no place for nonfiction works, just "Stories and Poems". A good essay (Mannawolf's) is worth its weight in gold.

I'll add something. I was also taught that definition of prose, but am going to change that as well. The problem with making a new category called non-fiction though: Many stories, including a lot of mine, are non-fiction too. I'll have to look over things, and think on this, but will be making some changes soon.
