WEAVER PRESS is a small independent publishing house formed in 1998 to publish books from and about Zimbabwe.

Weaver's growing fiction list now features over seventy Zimbabwean authors, including several international prizewinners; while our short-story anthologies give voice to many younger writers. Our developing non-fiction list focuses on political and social history, the environment, media issues, and women's and children's rights and contains many esteemed scholars whose work looks at various developments within the country from a wide range of different viewpoints.

Through its distributor, the African Books Collective and through the sale of foreign rights, Weaver Press seeks to make Zimbabwean writing and research available to an international readership.

Weaver Press is also pleased to have worked closely with various NGO partners in the development of particular texts, and will also occasionally undertake freelance work on their behalf.
