Apologies if this has been dealt with elsewhere, but does anyone have one centralized list of writing conferences?  Not just the SCBWI but the ones such as Big Sur, Book Con, etc.?

Thanks,
Andy

Do you want only children's lit conferences?

Not exclusively, as long as there's some YA, kidlit component.  Thank you for links!

Sometimes the 'kidlit' component comes just through the editors/agents who are attending also. I've gone to a few nearby (I live in the Denver area), and my two favorites were not kidlit conferences, but both had publishing professionals (agents and editors) who also did kidlit. The seminars/classes were general writing types, but I found them really well done. I attended the Pikes Peak Writing Conference twice (a couple years apart), and I was impressed with the quality of the seminars (and the variety). I met with a couple of kidlit agents at those conferences, as well.
