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() )
