Using Scribus to Publish a Newsletter
This article by Donald Emmack first appeared in TUX Magazine, Issue 13.
If you have ever used a word processor to create a newsletter you probably felt like someone tied at least one of your hands behind your back.

Enter Scribus, an Open Source Desktop Publishing system. If your newsletter is more than a few pages of text, take a look. Scribus is likely a fine tool to do your job and a lot more.
