When authors create stories set in cultures that are foreign to them they face several challenges what are those challenges?

1) There are different customs and laws
2) Maybe different clothing, or clothing for special occasions
3) Different equality of the genders
4) Different ways of preparing things eg. Marriage ceremonies
5) Systems eg. Schools, roads

If you do want to write about/in a different culture, you must make sure to research the culture very well, even if most people don't live with that kind of culture.
Setting is very important to a work of fiction. What is setting? What different roles can it play in a story? How was setting presented differently by colonial and postcolonial writers in their work?

Setting: The place that the story or work of art takes place, and also the time period in history in which it takes place (i.e. modern day, Civil War Era, etc.)

Roles: can be a very minor part to the story, like if it was modern day about the street life in New York City, well, it could apply to any city in the United States. However, if it takes place in the future in a small town that was invented by the author, it is essential to understanding the story.

Portrayals: Colonial writers used a lot of Old English in their books, as they did through the 1800s. After the 1800s, it became a more modern style of writing.
