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.

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.

I had a selection criteria document I was wishing to submit but I knew the wording for the level of the position I was applying for needed work. Ruth was very professional in her approach and had a great understanding of what was required. She successfully upgraded my selection criteria to the level the position required. Thank you so much for your assistance.
