Born in 1978 in Paris, Félix Jousserand is a poet.

He lives and works in Montpellier. His texts are published by Au Diable Vauvert. He performs on stage and writes for theatre and music. Pioneer of the French slam scene in the 2000s, he digs the furrow of an epic poetry. In 2018 he created Canso, a performance based on the Song of the Albigensian Crusade.
His latest book is entitled Le Siège de Mossoul, Au Diable Vauvert, 2019.

His project at the Villa Medici is devoted to writing an oratorio divided into five pieces of poetry, each one in five acts, in measured verse, retracing the golden hours of the Antonine dynasty, following the reign of the five emperors who led the Empire to its apogee before accompanying its fall: Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus, Marcus Aurelius and Commodus.
