Blog #4 - Revising Japanese Rengas for Voiceover

Minimum - Revise your Japanese renga poetry and critique with Mike

Great - Revise your Japanese renga poetry and critique with Mike. Record a voiceover of it that can be used for your group's film.

Ultimate Goal - Revise your Japanese renga poetry and critique with Mike. Record a voiceover and share the film clip that includes your poem(s). *If your group decides not to use your clip, please chat with Mike.
