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.
