Do you mean you want line breaks in the middle of a line? No way to do
that, as far as I know. You just need to create a new paragraph.
However, it's easy to write a little routine to split() the line at \n
characters and generate multiple Paragraphs from it.
On the other hand, page breaks are easy:
from reportlab.platypus.flowables import PageBreak
story.append( PageBreak() )
