Olivia Mulligan’s first poem anthology, Poems on the Gate Post, was born out of a lockdown project. Olivia decided to write a poem and pin it to the gatepost outside her house. Her poems were an instant hit, with people contacting her to suggest themes for future poems. At the end of lockdown Olivia got her poems published where they, and her, came to the attention of  BBC Radio York who named her their Poet Laureate.
