Fortnight was a monthly (despite the name) political and cultural magazine published in Belfast, Northern Ireland.  The magazine was founded in 1970 and aims to provide analysis and criticism of politics, culture, and the arts from those from both inside and outside the local mainstream. Fortnight is read by and contributed to by people from all over the spectrum. Gerry Adams is credited as saying "A month without Fortnight would be twice as long."
Previous contributors include politicians and journalists. Most notably, David Trimble - ex-leader of the Ulster Unionists  and Mary Robinson, later President of Ireland - contributed material to Fortnight. Other politicians who wrote for the magazine included Peter Robinson. 
Other notable contributors include: Newton Emerson (who spawned the popular satirical website The Portadown News), Ed Moloney, Eamonn McCann, Fionnula O'Connor, Brian Trench, Gene Kerrigan, Mary Holland, Douglas Gageby (the former editor of The Irish Times), Barry White of the Belfast Telegraph, Conor O'Clery, John Cooney, Dick Walsh and Nell McCafferty.
Editors have included Tom Hadden, Andy Pollak, Leslie Van Slyke, Robin Wilson (later to found the Democratic Dialogue thinktank), John O'Farrell and Malachi O'Doherty. Literary editors have included the poets James Simmons and Medbh McGuckian. Cartoonist Martyn Turner has been a regular contributor since the magazine was founded, and also edited the magazine at one point.
Fortnight was supported by grants from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
