I’d like to add category posts to the wordpress admin menu.  For example, if one post category is Products and one is Events, there would be in the admin menu “Products” and “Events” menus.  Sub-menu items would include the following:

= Posts- listing out all posts belonging to the specified category (edit.php)
= Add New- ability to add a new post belonging to the specified category (post-new.php)

In case it can help others.  

To list posts by category in the sub-menu under the Posts heading, using the category Services for example...
add_action('admin_menu', 'services_menu');
function services_menu() {
add_submenu_page('edit.php', 'Services', 'Services', 'manage_options', 'edit.php?category_name=services' ); }
