Make a two-column publication in Publisher

  1. Click File > New, and click a blank publication.

    File New

  2. Click Insert > Draw Text Box, and draw a text box that goes to the margins of the page.

  3. Make sure the text box is selected and click Text Box Tools Format > Columns > Two Columns.
