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 worked with Ruth during her time at Stop Climate Chaos – she managed the role of bringing together multiple organisations, (with their separate identities, priorities and plans), to deliver joint plans that contributed to real change – an achievement not to be underestimated! She’s a brilliant strategist and a creative force, I’d have no hesitation in recommending her to organisations looking for campaign delivery or communications support.

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.
