I’m Ruth Dawkins, a freelance communications professional based in Hobart, Tasmania.

I offer copywriting and social media management for small businesses and not-for-profit organisations. 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 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.

Ruth is an excellent writer. I particularly remember her ability to turn internal, formal, jargon-heavy university documents into language that was accessible and relevant to students. She wrote eye-catching and pertinent press releases in order to present matters of university or government policy to stakeholders in an informative way. Ruth’s work led to a significant increase in student involvement when she was President of Edinburgh University Students’ Association.
