Feedback from recent Students:
"Dixie De La Tour’s storytelling class helped me with finding my voice, and to tell compelling stories that weren’t rambling… I recently interviewed at the third largest company in the world and throughout the interview process, I told 20 stories about my experience- 15 in the last round! And you can bet Dixie was in the first 5 people I called to thank when I learned I would be offered the role! I could not have been prepared for this without Dixie’s storytelling method. Dixie's storytelling system is amazing and it fits into so many situations. I can’t promise you’ll get a new job, but I will say you’ll definitely be more fascinating." - Barbie Jean
“This was a spectacular experience and I am so glad that I got to take this workshop. You are a terrific teacher: it is so amazing to me that you have been able to distill your process, and then teach it so well - I am in awe of your organization and skill.” - AJ
"OMG this was so much fun, Dixie! I didn’t know what to expect, but this exceeded my most optimistic hopes. This class was a spectacular success from my point of view. Thanks again, and you haven’t seen the last of me. I'm coming back for your advanced workshop!" - Brendan
"I learned more about the nature of story here than in 4 years of studying creative writing, including and especially how we can use our stories to connect to each other" - Carrie
"This was a wonderful workshop - fun, warm, welcoming and a lot of work. I have a totally different view of my stories now. 10/10 would repeat!" - Hearty

“Dixie De La Tour understands stories, full stop. She understands stories because she understands people. Regardless of who you are or what story you're trying to tell you've got to access a scary place in yourself to tell a story truthfully. Dixie knows how to lead you to that place and celebrate with you once you're there. This is aside from the nuts and bolts of structuring a story and putting the right words in the right order, Dixie can do that too, but ultimately she makes your stories come alive because she makes you come alive.”
- Eric Czuleger, Creator of the Howl Podcast, author of Immortal LA and Eternal LA
“Working with Dixie is a rare joy and powerful gift that everyone deserves to experience. I have worked with her to tell both funny and heartbreaking stories on stage, and there is no one else I would rather trust my experience and vulnerability with first before I share it publicly. She has a masterful talent for helping you weave your own raw experiences into a story that can move hundreds strangers to laughter, tears, or both. However, more importantly, she coaches storytellers in a way that can transform the very experience of storytelling into an act of radical self-love and acceptance. We all have stories to tell. Dixie can make yours a legend.”
- Medical Student & Storytelling show host Ben Colburn
"If you've ever wanted to tell a story but weren't sure how to go about it -- or if you've told a story that got a lukewarm response and you want to tell it again and make it really sing -- I have very simple, surefire advice: Dixie De La Tour. Dixie knows her audience, and she has an innate sense of what about your story will have the most impact. She knows, down in her pores, that it's not so much about the art of storytelling as it is about the heart of storytelling. Yes, she's smart, and funny, and fun to work with, but that just disguises the soul-searching -- one might even say soul-searing -- work she inspires you to do on behalf of your story. By the time Dixie's done with you, it's not just you that's speaking to the audience -- it's your story, your heart, your soul that's doing the talking. And it is a powerful transmutation indeed.
What's more, whenever possible Dixie makes herself available to you to answer questions or give a quick take on another draft to help you feel secure you're on the right track. She's not an aloof guru -- she's an involved partner. I'm hard-pressed to imagine how any story coach could be more impactful, more insightful, and more inspirational than Dixie. She is storytelling's De La Tour de Force.
