About Weaver Press

Weaver Press is a dynamic independent publishing house formed in 1998 to publish books from and about Zimbabwe.

Weaver’s growing fiction list now features over 120 Zimbabwean short story writers, and our novelists include several international prize-winners who were first published by Weaver Press. Our non-fiction list focuses on political and social history, the environment, media issues, and women and children’s rights; it features many esteemed scholars from inside and outside Zimbabwe whose work looks at Zimbabwe’s developments from a wide range of viewpoints.

Weaver Press also works closely with NGO partners in the arts and culture, human rights and development. We undertake freelance work on their behalf in the research and publication of texts. Enquiries from interested organisations are always welcome.

Through our links with libraries, universities, literary associations, book fairs, and NGOs, and by offering access to a range of networks, we ensure that information and ideas are widely spread.
