*Renga consists of alternating haiku and couplets, with each stanza written by a different person. Here's how renga works: Poet #1 writes a haiku, a short poem of three lines. The first line has five syllables in it, the second line has seven syllables, and the third line has five syllables.  https://ypn.poetrysociety.org.uk/workshop/renga-a-collaborative-poetry-challenge/#:~:text=Renga%20consists%20of%20alternating%20haiku,line%20has%20five%20syllables%2C%20e.g.
