Tricia, I'd like to add another conference to your list--the Oregon Christian Writers Summer Coaching Conference.

One of the unique advantages of this conference is the small morning coaching classes (up to 10 people or so in a class) that are offered. You take one coaching class for the three days of the conference. A variety of workshops are offered in the afternoon.
About 40 agents and editors are on faculty and available for appointments.

The dates for the 2007 conference are July 30 - August 2. Angela Hunt is the keynote speaker.
