Penny for your thoughts .....
Prose to me is an umbrella term meaning not much more that 'writing' but separating/excluding poetry. Creative non-fiction is a term that means non-fiction presented in a narrative manner e.g. not just reporting, but telling it as a story. Much non-fiction today is written in this manner. Essay is a bit of a looser term in that it allows in much personal interpretation. The two books I mention include all types of creative non-fiction including essays, memoirs, articles, and reporting.

The In Short book has specifically selected shorter works.

Hope that helps.
