Re: Prose and Story Writing
Non-fiction prose does not have to be a story, like a journalism article or a biography. I can be an explanation of who something works, a recounting of the history of fastening devices, or a comparison of Greek and Roman gods. As long as it's fact-based, and not a bunch of tables, charts, and bullet points, it's non-fiction prose.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
