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.

It’s always so nice to know there’s a friendly local face behind a corporate Social Media account, and Ruth was always the epitome of this for the Tasmanian Writers Centre. So many places struggle with the balance between voice, engagement, and call to action, but Ruth managed this perfectly.

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.
