    you should only use a publisher class such as apa6 if submitting to the journal in which case the layout for the journal is fixed, you can't submit a single column article to a two column journal. that said adding onecolumn to the document class options might work... – David Carlisle Jun 5 at 17:43

    you don't need to format your entire document as an APA journal submission just to format citations in a particular style. You could just use a standard article class. – David Carlisle Jun 5 at 17:49

    apa6.cls looks like it uses \usepackage[style=apa,sortcites=true,sorting=nyt,backend=biber]{biblatex} – David Carlisle Jun 5 at 17:51
