Three workshop ideas. You know this.
1. Revise. The draft changes and takes shape as you revise (re-vision, re-see, review, reconsider) what you first wrote.
2. Revise your first draft once at least, maybe twice, before bringing it to workshop. Absolute first drafts are like a bag of groceries you place on the counter, waiting for your readers to come in, unpack, get out the pots and pans, cut the carrots, and prepare dinner for you. What's for dinner?
3. If your desire to be read eclipses your drive to write, you may be in the wrong forest.
