I use Wordpress as a school paper blog and I would like to have different authors for articles. How can I add some new authors other than my blog title?

What do you mean 'other than my blog title' ? – Androliyah Feb 13 '13 at 23:22
Why not add users with the "Author" Role? – s_ha_dum Feb 13 '13 at 23:25

Add some more authors in wp-admin, and if You would like to show author under a post, place:

<?php the_author(); ?>

in index.php, single.php or any other template file, that Your theme is using to show blog posts, single post, archive etc.
