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.

I have had poor experiences using external communications resources because, by their nature, they are not as attuned to your approach. You can burn time on the brief and still end up bogged down in revisions. That’s not been my experience with Ruth. She either ‘gets it’ straight up or she takes first draft feedback and turns it into the right outcome. Its a rare skill and it equates to real value in a busy environment.
