Magazines and newspapers are usually made with professional typesetting and layouting programmes like QuarkXpress, Adobe InDesign or CorelDraw.

There is also a free, cross-platform and open source application called Scribus which competes very well with the commercial alternatives. You could use it to kickstart and develop your magazine-making skills: http://www.scribus.net/canvas/Scribus

All of the above mentioned commercial programmes offer free 30-day demos as well. But mind you: Layouting is difficult to learn, it will take some time and serious effort.
