Abstract: We develop the theory of twisted stable maps into a tame Artin stack $ \mathcal{M}$. We show that the stacks $ \mathcal{K}_{g,n}(\mathcal{M})$ of twisted stable maps are algebraic, and proper and quasi-finite over the corresponding stacks $ \mathcal{K}_{g,n}(M)$ of stable maps of the coarse moduli space $ M$ of $ \mathcal{M}$. In the special case where $ \mathcal{M}=\mathcal{B}G$, the classifying stack of a linearly reductive group scheme $ G$, we show that $ \mathcal{K}_{g,n}(\mathcal{B}G)\to\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{g,n}$ is a flat morphism with local complete intersection fibers.
