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 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.

I have had the great pleasure to be on the receiving end of Ruth’s skilled communications and, in my role as literary journalist have been delighted at her responsiveness as well as her proactive approach to sharing information. She changed the face of the Tasmanian Writers’ Centre, introducing regular updates, knowledge sharing and interviews with writers. Her introduction of competitions and Books of the Month displayed an active engagement with the sector. Her clear and timely media releases, alongside personalised drip feeds of news suggested to me a true engagement and awareness of the sector.
