What is the etymology of "verki"?

How is this different from skribisto? I mean, writer and author are a little different but what's the semantic/cultural difference?

Maybe it has to do with how "skribi" just means "to write" while "verki" also means "to write" but also means "to create/compose". "Skribisto" means a "clerk".
