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.

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.
