This month's Trireme Award, for the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars", goes to Reed-Elsevier. One unnamed Elsevier publication paid a freelance NUJ member a crisp tenner (or its electronic transaction equivalent) for 250 words - the same reward most comics gave for published artwork on the letters page sent in by juvenile readers a couple of decades ago.
