having about 12 screens running long processes, I am willing to check out the state from time to time.

I would like to "tail -f " them all in a single console window so I don't have to switch between them every now and then.

Processes are running hence, IO redirection >> to a single file is currently not possible without stopping them - something I'd like to avoid.

why to use many screens?

Use putty or reflection application and minimize the screens so you can look on one screen with many screens
