The State of African Publishing: Weaverpress Zimbabwe

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.



  1. This is great!

  2. iUniverse has helped more than 35,000 authors publish their books professionally and affordably. Since 1999, we have crafted a reputation for breaking records and blazing new trails in the self-publishing industry.

    1. Thanks so much for the info on iUniverse. It's actually quite interesting I get this today as I was thinking about writing a post on African authors and self-publishing. So maybe I'll get to writing it soon :).

  3. Very informative and helpful. I was searching for a list of catalogue about Zimbabwe literature but there are very limited resources. Thank you for providing this list.

    1. Hi James,

      You are most welcome. I am glad you found the list informative and helpful - honestly one of the reasons why I wanted to highlight African publishers.
