Who We Are

WayWordBound has experience working with small, rural and frontier schools for the past 50 years.  It began its efforts in the northeastern area of Pennsylvania, spending then 11 years in the frontier areas of northern Nevada, rural Pennsylvania, the southern tier of New York State and now in the north-eastern and mid-section of Montana.

The company has also been at the heart of the grass-roots fine arts movement with a firm belief in the strength of local artist endeavors.

The company also has two other publishing branches known as Avanti Publications dealing with the avant garde aspect of the art/music world and Tonal Function which has a relationship with providing quality arrangements reflective of local needs and desires.
