Wordweaver is a new Namibian Publishing House which was launched in Windhoek on 17 March 2012. Unlike most existing publishing houses in Namibia who focus only on educational material, Wordweaver publishes a wide range of fiction genres. Wordweaver was established as a response to the incredible talent of Namibian writers and the difficulties they faced in getting published. Visit the Wordweaver website here:
