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.

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.

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.
