About Ian Bland

Since October 2000, I have worked as a professional children’s poet and performer and have visited literally hundreds of schools, libraries and festivals both here in the UK and all over the world.

I have work published by Macmillan, Scholastic, AC Black, Oxford University Press and Hands Up Books to name just a few. My work was recently featured on BBC1’s Match of the Day and I have performed many times on regional and national radio.

I’m a single Dad and the proud owner of twins called James and Madeleine. We live in Rossendale in Lancashire where it rains - A LOT!
