I'm working on a proposal to do a large documentation project for a local organization--more than I care to do by myself, as I have other, non-TW projects competing for my time. However, I'm not sure the best approach to take to staff such a project. I suppose I could advertise for a contractor, but given the time of year, I'm thinking of looking for an intern. I realize I'd have to supervise closely and do a lot of teaching, but that's fine with me.

Any strong cautions, one way or the other (contractor vs. intern)? Any suggestions where to troll for interns efficiently?

This is all very tentative, as I don't have the contract yet. So please, no résumés. I'm just looking for guidance from people who've been here before.
