Sawyer was a winner of the 2003 Discovery /'The Nation' Poetry Competition and has published poems in many literary magazines. His poem, 'How I Know She's Coming Home,' was selected by Natasha Trethewey for Meridian Best New Poets 2007, and another poem, 'Hong Kong Harbor 1984,' became the lyrics to a choral piece composed by Philip White, which premiered in Los Angeles, performed by Angel City Chorale, on June 2, 2012. He has also had works in publications as varied as Adbusters, Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism, and The New York New Times. In December 2014, Sawyer self-published AMERICAN LULLABY under the imprint Exits but no Escapes Press. In May 2019, Isla Negra Editores published AMERICAN LULLABY: Edicion Bilingüe Con Nuevos Poemas, translated by Tallulah Flores Prieto. Sawyer was invited to read in the 2017 Festival Internacional de Poesía, PoeMaRío, in Barranquilla, Colombia.
