Jacques Jouet (born 6 October 1947) is a French writer and has been a participating member of the Oulipo literary project since 1983.
He is a poet, novelist, short story writer, playwright, essayiste, and plasticine artist specializing in collages. As a member of l'Oulipo, Jouet became its focus in June 2009 when he began publicly writing a serialized novel in five days. He first became involved with Oulipo in 1978, stemming from a writing course directed by Paul Fournel, Georges Perec, and Jacques Roubaud.
His serial The Republic of Mek Ouyes was broadcast simultaneously on radio and on the web, through the site of his publisher, P.O.L.
Jouet wrote Poèmes de métro while riding the underground trains of the Paris Métro.
