I translated "verko" as "work of literature", which should be accepted. (Another possibility would be "a literary work")

It's just 'work', it could refer to literature, or art (painting) or sculpture. Without it being specified, keep it to just work.

Why not "skribisto"?

I think "skribisto" would refer to someone whose job is the action of actually writing - putting words onto paper, in the same way that "tajpisto" is someone who types. Neither means that the person concerned actually decides what to write or type, as an author (verkisto) does.

"I write for a living"= "Mi estas skribisto". " I am an author"= "Mi estas verkisto". Who says Esperanto doesn't do 'subtle'?
