Word Museum is owned and operated by the Soard family. The site was started in 1997 as a way for readers and writers to connect online. WM was one of the first websites of its kind. Although the site passed out of Lori Soard’s ownership for a number of years, in late 2011, she was able to regain ownership of the domain and begin rebuilding the website to its former glory.
WM always has been and always will be a site that morphs and changes with the times. However, it always has been and always will be a place for readers and writers to get together, share ideas and just chat and get to know one another.
