The State of African Publishing: Weaverpress Zimbabwe

by - 11:54

I am kind of obsessed with Zimbabwean literature at the moment, so obviously I had to do a post on Weaverpress because they publish some pretty amazing books, like The Hairdresser of Harare.

Weaver Press is a small independent Zimbabwean publisher formed in 1998 to publish books from and about Zimbabwe. While they focus on political and social history, the environment, media issues, and women’s and children’s rights; they also have a growing fiction list with works from award-winning Zimbabwean authors. They also publish short-story anthologies and some YA. 

Here is a look at some of the amazing works they publish. Find out more about Weaverpress and their catalogue here.
