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 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.

Years ago, as part of my editing role at Mothers Always Write, I was tasked with coaching a group of writers for an intensive boot camp, in which Ruth was enrolled. The process was part collaborative editing, part brutally honest feedback, and all sourced from deeply personal experiences. Ruth was a pleasure to work with: responsive, receptive, and gracious. She writes from her heart, in a style both lyrical and precise, with adept skills for the literary and expository essay.
