Screed is not a word I have seen before. I first saw it on the title of a book on display at the Northern Colorado Writers’ Studio.
Curious minds had to know.
After some investigation—okay, Google searches—here is what I found. Screed can be an informal letter or other piece of writing. Some feel it means a long, monotonous speech or piece of writing. Others go as far as to say it is a diatribe or a ranting.
I hope no one describes most of my writing as screed. Well, at least I have a new word for my next scrabble game.
