The Sol Plaatje Educational Trust was established in 1991 and operates from the house at 31 Angel Street, Kimberley, where Sol T Plaatje, pioneering author and founder member of the ANC, lived at the time of his death in 1932. From the inception of the Trust, the Trustees believed that the house and the projects emanating from it should reflect the legacy of Plaatje in a direct or symbolic manner. Since then a relevant museum area was established in the front rooms of the house together with a reference library in the central part of the house. Since the launch of a publications programme in 2002 the main aim is to produce new knowledge and to add value to oral histories, indigenous language development and Plaatje’s own contribution in the fields of journalism,indigenous,literature,and historical writings.

Email:weaver@mweb.co.za

WEAVER PRESS was formed in 1998. A founding commitment of the company is to ensure that the results of research, scholarship and creative writing are made available in their region of origin and not only in foreign markets. The Company’s list focuses on political and social history, the environment, media issues, and women’s and children’s rights. A fiction imprint was launched in 2002.

The state of the Zimbabwean economy has demanded an innovative approach to publishing. Where possible, production subsidies are obtained to allow books to be sold at affordable prices through the retail trade. Grants are also sometimes used to underwrite the free distribution of books to libraries.

Weaver Press is a small company, employing only a publishing assistant apart from the two owner-directors, and operates from premises at the directors’ home. By keeping overheads low, and by employing a judicious mix of co-publishing arrangements, donor partnerships and links with academic and creative writing communities, it has established a modest niche in Zimbabwe’s publishing sector.
