Creating a newsletter is usually a job reserved for desktop publishing programs, such as Microsoft Publisher. Word, however, has a number of tools that enable you to put together a simple, yet effective and attractive newsletter.
Newsletters consist of a number of elements, but nearly all have a title, story headlines, articles, and graphics. The text is often split into two or three columns, making it easier to read than one-column articles. Newsletters are often printed, but they can also be designed as Web pages. Two useful tools in Microsoft Word include research tools and mail merge. Use these tools to find information included in the Office package or information on the Web, and to create a mass mailing.
