I’m Ruth Dawkins, a freelance communications professional based in Hobart, Tasmania.

I offer copywriting, editing and proofreading for small businesses, universities, not-for-profits, and the tourism sector. I’m also an experienced feature writer in the areas of lifestyle, parenting and travel.

Please take some time to explore my site and get in touch if you think I can help.

Ruth took a very complex change program, a large volume of content and market research outcomes and developed a clear and succinct suite of communications carefully tailored to the various audience requirements. Ruth worked with a great deal of flexibility and efficiency to meet a series of short deadlines with engagement across a range of stakeholders. Her warmth and communication skills made a difficult exercise straightforward.

Years ago, as part of my editing role at Mothers Always Write, I was tasked with coaching a group of writers for an intensive boot camp, in which Ruth was enrolled. The process was part collaborative editing, part brutally honest feedback, and all sourced from deeply personal experiences. Ruth was a pleasure to work with: responsive, receptive, and gracious. She writes from her heart, in a style both lyrical and precise, with adept skills for the literary and expository essay.
