Julien Torma (April 6, 1902February 17, 1933) was a French writer, playwright and poet who was part of the Dadaist movement. He was born in Cambrai, France, and died in Tyrol.

A friend of Max Jacob and Robert Desnos, he was near the surrealist group without adhering to surrealism. He felt himself nearer to Alfred Jarry's 'pataphysics than Andre Breton's surrealism. Most of his writings were posthumously revealed by the French College of 'Pataphysique.

Julien Torma disappeared in the mounts of Tyrol at the age of 30. He possibly committed suicide.
