This book is a short collection of essays on Native American issues. Lawson studied Native American issues from a philosophical standpoint for several years in addition to having the lived experience of being a person who found herself in a colonizer’s position in life as she raised a Choctaw daughter. Because Lawson believes “the personal is the philosophical,” these essays mix the personal and the philosophical together, telling both of her personal experiences along with her philosophical acumen.

Precisely four months before turning 40, award-winning poet Jennifer Lawson sat down one day to write a collection of poems. At her computer most of the day on June 4th 2019, Lawson penned this free verse, stream of consciousness selection. It spans quite a lot: from thinking about the age one peaks to thinking about future generations and the inspiration they may bring. This collection of poems is Lawson’s most honest, personal and intimate–from a poet who has produced hundreds of thousands of poems in her lifetime. Poems on My Way to Forty is a book for everyone.


In the depths of recovery from schizophrenia and loneliness, Lawson crafts some of her most harrowing poems. Written during the Fall of 2019, these poems, centered around the need for human connection, lost friendship and healing, bring out Lawson’s talent.


During the rainy season in Florida, Jennifer Lawson writes beautiful poetry about storms and intriguing insights about climate change.
