The Surrender Theory begins in the thick of heartbreak, gets lost in the vibrancy of new love, and eventually rediscovers itself in a place of peace and closure. It’s about learning to grow alongside grief. About taking the hand of your younger self and forgiving them. Through pages of truisms and poems, this debut collection from Caitlin Conlon explores the boundaries of our most poignant and human emotions.

Deeply personal yet universal, The Surrender Theory speaks to anyone who has put their heart out into the world and hoped with everything in them that it would come home unscathed.


Caitlin Conlon is the author of The Surrender Theory and a writer from upstate New York with a loyal audience across social media platforms, most notably on Instagram. Caitlin has previously been published in Thought Catalog, Up the Staircase Quarterly, and Rust + Moth, among others. When she isn’t writing, she spends most of her free time working through her towering piles of unread books. She enjoys plants, astrology, the color yellow, crewneck sweaters, libraries, and the sound of violins. You can find her at @cgcpoems almost anywhere.
