WORK's category expectations are as follows:

Essay is a discussion or examination of a particular topic or theme, not necessarily related to the author.
Memoir is a narrative based on a person's experience.
Interview is an indepth discussion with, in this context, someone who holds or formerly held an interesting, unusual or otherwise important occupation, that in the process of discussion reveals more about the occupation and/or the person than could be ascertained without the interview.
Fiction is a rendering of imagined happenings which, through implementation of craft, appears to be true.
