FIELD NOTES
***G20 roundup: assaults, arrests and broken gear***
While the stories from Toronto's chaotic G20 weekend continue to trickle in, J-Source has created a roundup of stories from journalists who were on the ground.

TOWN HALL
***The fear that guides us: G20 op-ed***
Hearing the news on the eve of Toronto's G20 that a York University graduate student was detained under a city bylaw law nobody knew about (including him), Maija Saari was struck by the degree to which those caught up in bubbles of the like-minded can become terrified of demons of their own creation.

MAGAZINES
***Magazine writers slow to take up multimedia***
As the digital age continues to creep into every aspect of journalism, Susan Currie Sivek asks: why aren't magazines tapping freelancers for multimedia?

STUDENTS' LOUNGE
***Freelancers prepare for battle***
Freelance writers march into war. The cause: increased rates, rights and respect. The enemy: publishers like Transcontinental. Who will retreat first? This week we feature Melissa Wilson's story from the summer issue of the Ryerson Review of Journalism.
