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.

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.

Mothers Always Write

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.
