The CalendarWizard script is actually quite versatile. Even without 
changing the script, try this:

Make your calendar, choosing a page size which will approximate your end 
resulting text box. Uncheck the box for making an image frame. Choose 
your month, and other calendar features. Note that you can choose a font 
and its size along the way.

Create the calendar page. Now, select all of the calendar frames, then 
Item > Group.
Now that you have them grouped, you can resize the calendar to the 
precise dimensions you need, and also within Properties > Text, you can 
alter the font as desired for the whole calendar at once. Now copy your 
calendar and paste to the newsletter or other Scribus document you wish 
to put it into.

I think with practice it will give you everything you need, and really 
quite quickly, since once you find a calendar size and font that works, 
you just plug that in as you go and then just group, copy, paste.
