Hi Guys,

I have a cancer support website and provide news online, we have moved to wordpress to show news articles, we are currently manually creating a printed newsletter from the articles using microsoft publisher, is there a plugin that will facilitate, improve this process.

We also want to generate an email newsletter from these articles.
Please let me know, currently it is taking a lot of time.

No, because print layouts for a newsletter are fundamentally different from web page print layouts.  There are ways to go from WordPress to email newsletters but once you start creating a printed copy with columns and sections and potentially multiple stories per printed page you're into a whole different thing.
