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

I offer copywriting, editing and proofreading for small businesses, universities and not-for-profit organisations. 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 Dawkins is an inspiration to fellow writers, and a valuable asset in the corporate world. Having worked with her in a professional capacity at the Tasmanian Writers Centre, as well as reading her freelance pieces, I have been impressed by Ruth’s remarkable copywriting and storytelling abilities. Ruth crafts pieces with warmth and sensitivity; qualities she also extends into her social media work as a way to build and nurture the virtual communities in which she is involved. I feel lucky to have worked with Ruth, and to know that her down-to-earth and generous nature is at the foundation of her career in this industry.

It’s always so nice to know there’s a friendly local face behind a corporate Social Media account, and Ruth was always the epitome of this for the Tasmanian Writers Centre. So many places struggle with the balance between voice, engagement, and call to action, but Ruth managed this perfectly.
