Olivia Mulligan

Olivia started sharing her poetry with the world in lockdown (2020). She wrote a poem each day and would pin each poem on her gate post for passers by to read. Since then, she has had three poetry collections published, 'Poems On The Gate Post,' 'Advice From A Stranger' and '10:37.'

Passionate about sharing uplifting material with others, she has taken to the stage performing her poetry, she runs poetry workshops for both children and adults and at the start of 2021, was appointed BBC Radio York’s Poet Laureate.
