His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn recently designated Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana to grace the 2012 Southeast Asian Writers (SEA Write) awards presentation ceremony and gala dinner in the Royal Ballroom of the Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok. 

The Awards Gala was the culmination of not only the usual five-day SEA Write Week full of activities including lunches, receptions and poetry readings at Bangkok Bank, Bank of Thailand and Suan Pakkad Palace, respectively, but also the two-day "Reaching the World" writers and translators summit, organised by Asia-Pacific Writers based in Australia, in collaboration with Chulalongkorn University and the SEA Write Award.

This first of its kind forum, which took place a few days earlier at Chulalongkorn University, brought participants from over 20 countries, some of whom joined the SEA Write Awards Gala. There they had the opportunity to rub shoulders with high level members of the diplomatic corps, past Thai awardees, members of the PEN Club of Thailand and Writers' Association of Thailand, and other leading literary figures and enthusiasts.
