What is the correct way to say/write this expression?

We can either say “να γράψετε” or “γράψτε” (= write!), both of them are correct.  Please note that “να γράψτε” is incorrect.

“να γράψετε” is a form of conjunctive in second plural and “γράψτε” is a form of imperative in  second plural.

Both phrases mean exactly the same thing (= write!).  However “γράψτε” sounds like an order, it is more firm.  “να γράψετε” is a call to action and is more polite.

We can use imperative or conjunctive to give an order, the imperative though is usually more firm and emphatic.
