What is an Uncommittee?

Image of a Creative Uncommittee

An uncommittee is a loose collective of people with a shared goal, interest or cause, who meet up to collaborate, as needed. This more creative approach avoids the hierarchical and bureaucratic aspects of traditional committees, such as rigid roles, red tape, and top-down decision-making. Coined by Orna Ross, novelist poet and founder of the Alliance of Independent Authors, who based it on the idea of the “unconference” that’s widespread in the self-publishing sector, an uncommittee eschew hierarchical structures in the same way, and foster a more egalitarian experience that thrives on spontaneity and serendipity.
