I do a two-page weekly 'zine for an apa.  I use OpenOffice to enter the 
text and get the spelling right.  Then, I import it into scribus, 
dropping it into a template to get the basic look right.  Last, I go 
into the story editor apply the appropriate paragraph styles and add 
italics as needed.  I don't use paragraph styles in OOo because I've got 
them set just the way I like them in scribus, and for me it's a case of 

If you need to import files that other people have created, with their 
own styles, there's an check-box in the Import dialog that allows you to 
import text only, not the styles.
