His poetry has received four Pushcart Prize nominations, and he has received fellowships and residencies from Cave Canem, Kundiman, the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, Vermont Studio Center, Yaddo, Anderson Center for the Arts, Squaw Valley Community of Writers and Djerassi Resident Artists Program. With poets Dawn Lundy Martin and Duriel E. Harris, Wilson co-founded the performance-based Black Took Collective.
