Who We Are


ABOUT

The Green Shoe Sanctuary was established to provide a creative space for short story, flash fiction, memoir, literary non-fiction, book reviews, critical thinking essays, poetry and prose.

WHY THE GREEN SHOES?

Because these green shoes are one-of-a-kind. They were designed and created just for A.L. You will never find another pair of these shoes in existence.
This is what authors do when we write. Even if the themes are similar or the genre is popular, there will never be another writer exactly like you. Your voice, your experiences, your writing style are all unique only to you.
There will never be another you, and we are excited to read your unique story.
