An advocate for the type of poetry you can understand, Bilgere has been called "a welcome breath of fresh, American air" by U.S. Poet Laureate (2001-2003) Billy Collins and has received grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Pushcart Foundation, the Witter Bynner Foundation through the Library of Congress, and the Fulbright Foundation.

In addition to giving readings in venues around the country, he also hosts a weekly radio show, WORDPLAY, that is an offbeat mix of poetry, comedy, and an ongoing exploration of the possibilities of the spoken word.
