I'd imagine that there would be plenty of N there to balance out the C of the newspaper. If you piled it up, kept it moist, and poked some holes in it with a garden fork or crumple it up some I'd imagine it would start composting by itself. The key here would be keeping it moist and aerated. Maybe you have some branches or other woody waste that you could layer in between the newspaper to provide air gaps? I would definitely avoid compacting it in any way. That would make it smell bad and turn the whole process anaerobic.
