Scribus doesn't "think" like a word processor. That means that it does
not automatically create new pages when you add text. There is no way
to make it do so.

However, when you create a new document you can specify the number of
pages you expect it to be. (You can always add or delete pages later if
you guess wrong.) There is a checkbox in the dialog box for creating a
new document called Automatic Text Frames (or something like that).
Check this box and Scribus will create the new document with a text
frame on each page, and the frames will be linked. Now, all you have to
do is import the text into the first text frame and it will flow
automatically into the frames on the remaining pages.
