    I just received an offer

    Hi Katie,
    We are looking for a play for our partner organization called Project Planet Network. Project Planet Network’s vision and mission is below.  I was fortunate enough to stumble upon your wonderful youth play titled WAKE UP.  We would like to start production of this play for many of Project Planet’s events as well as bringing it into all of the school districts in our surrounding counties.  Please let me know what we need to do to get your o.k and what your royalty fees our. Project Planet is under Holistic Mentorship Network, which is a 501c6 non-profit organization.  We are able to lobby and take political action.  Coming to gather to change the world.

    This is the first play I've written and have no clue as to what to do, any one have any experience?

      Maybe I ought to also clarify: There are excellent professional associations for screenwriters and playwrights that offer reliable advice on such matters.

    Yes, check their sites. They may be fine, but I'm always cautious when I get any offer that includes  spelling or grammar mistakes like (our/are) and (to gather/together).

      That did strike me as rather odd.

        Also, entities that offer royalties usually tell you what they customarily pay instead of asking how much you want. 
        As I said, this does not mean they are bad. If they are a non-profit or volunteer bunch, they may just be inexperienced.

      Yes I noted that and felt the same way about the spelling error, but then again the point about the non profit is valid as well... you never know
